Find a Face Creative Writing and Photography project. This bundle has printables and a lesson guide PowerPoint to walk students through the process of "finding a face" in an inanimate object. Students will love this creative writing activity. It is also a great way to use the camera feature on the iPad or tablet in the classroom. This helps bring the concept of personification to life!
Show the “Blue Umbrella” Pixar short and use the printable to brainstorm ideas of possible items to look for when taking pictures as a follow up to the video clip. There is also a PowerPoint filled with examples and pictures that I took around my house and neighborhood to give kids ideas of what to look for.
Use your tablets/devices or cameras to have students find pictures of everyday objects that look like they have faces. This could also be sent home as homework that a family can look for photos together. Students could also work in teams and go on a "nature walk" looking for faces in things around your school.
Use any of the following printables for students to describe the face they found. Post the question slides in the PowerPoint to help their brainstorming process.
