I love teaching about Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and our current President Barack Obama. There are so many fun projects to make but one of my favorites is having my students draw our current President.
Every year I get a chuckle out of how their drawings turn out. To do the activity I tap into the students schema on our current President, then I post a picture of him on my document camera. I don't do a directed drawing lesson. I just let them draw their own interpretation of the picture I post. Here are some of my favorites this year.
I have made my own version of this sheet FREE for you to enjoy :-) click here.
