PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Use this selfie project at the beginning of the year as a "Get to Know Me Activity". Students identify their character traits to complete a self portrait with a modern twist.

How it Works
So let's make an iPortrait! What's an iPortrait? Essentially it's a self description using character traits and a selfie. They also make a great bulletin board or other display for Back to School Night or Open House.

Part 1
The students explore positive, neutral and negative Character Traits Chart and identify one of each to describe himself or herself. Then the student completes an iPortrait Planner to show evidence that the traits do describe the student.

Part 2
In this part, the student then uses the information gained from the previous part to make a iPortrait and a Selfie. Once complete, the class can play a game of “Guess My Trait!" In small groups or whole class students read aloud the trait evidence while others try to guess the trait.

Now the student gets to interview a fellow student and learn about his/her character traits. Then the student makes a Friend iPortrait for his new friend! The teacher collects the Friend iPortraits and reads them aloud without mentioning who it is. The students have to guess who it is based on the character traits described in the game of “Guess Who I Am?”

Part 3
Students also have an opportunity to use the Paper Student Cut Out to make a Trait Puppet that reflects his/her traits.

Use one or all parts during the first week of school so students can get to know each other in a fun way!
