This week we are celebrating National Smile Week with our lesson plan “Smile for Leonardo!” Leonardo da Vinci was fascinated with faces and human idiosyncrasies. He filled notebooks with his sketches of facial features. Use this lesson plan to introduce your students to Leonardo da Vinci’s work and self-portrait techniques. Then, get your students to draw a self-portrait using some of these techniques!
You can hang these portraits around your classroom or in the school corridor to spread smiles school-wide!What are you doing for National Smile Week? Share in the comments below!
