Reflection: Lesson Planning The Shape of Me is Shaping Up - Section 1: Hook


When creating the photo "shadows", the more exaggerated the pose, the easier it was for the children to recognize their classmates.  Sitting or standing with arms to their sides made for a real challenge in distinguishing who was who.  Also, when cutting around the hair, it is better to cut a wavy line for curly hair and straight lines for straight hair.  The students really look at this feature.
