MLK Diversity Art Lesson

To celebrate Martin Luther King in my second grade class, we did this diversity art lesson.  I have been searching for the website that I printed this template out from but I am having a hard time locating it, as I printed it off at school so as soon as I figure out where I found it from I will get that link in case anyone would like to make them.  They would be pretty easy to make by hand or finding a body with wigs template.  I was thinking next time I would just cut them from my Cricut and then let the kids decorate them.  I just copied the templates on a few file folders and the kids just traced them.  I had to add an extra hairstyle because they were a bit girly.  (I kept calling them wigs and it made them giggle…kids are so funny!)

Each kiddo did a little half moon with 7 people holding hands.  Putting them together really pulled the activity together even more!

These took a lot longer than I would have expected but it seems like the art projects we enjoy most take a little more time than others!  The original website I found these on were a bit different.  The instructions called to have them cut part of the arms and link them around something round.  I did not like how that turned out so I just decided to make them do little half moons.  It was not until I started hanging them that I decided to make the full circles around the door.  It actually turned out even cuter than I had expected which is always a nice surprise.
