I have students fill out this mat and I mount it on large construction paper. I always laminate the final product so it keeps. I have these mats at each student's seat the morning of graduation with a framed picture of themselves in graduation cap and gown sitting in front of this mat. Parents loves this mat because it's something they can keep for a long time!
Students fill the left side in on their own and I help each student in small group complete their hand print with paint.
