Crayons, markers, or colored pencils OR a computer
Place the overhead projector near the ground and positioned so the light is shining on the wall.
Tape the piece of black construction paper or card stock on the wall
Have a friend stand in front of the light. They will need to stand so that the light hits them and projects their shadow onto the black paper
Have a friend turn sideways so you can see their silhouette, they will have to stand very still.
Trace your friend using the white crayon
Repeat with the drawer now becoming the silhouette
When both friends are have a silhouette cut them out and glue them to the white card stock or construction paper. Using crayons, markers or colored pencils have the kids write things that make them unique. If using a computer have the kids type the words they feel best describe themselves and print it off.
