All About Me Interview Art Project

By 7:00 AM , , , , , ,

We are kicking off the beginning of our homeschool year with an Back to School themed art project!  We decided to add a bit of artistic expression to this theme with this Personal Flag Art Project.

Fun twist on "1st Day Back to School Interviews"-- have student tell about him/herself via art by making this Personal Flag Art Project
post may contain affiliate links.
This art project would be a fun "get to know you project" for your classroom and/or a fun twist on the typical first day interview activities.  It would also make a fun project to start your homeschool year and would make a great addition to your homeschool room!

What you'll need:

  • Marker Paper
  • Markers
  • Pencil
  • extra sheet of paper

All About Me Project

To begin, I talked about the flag of the United States of America and how the symbols on the flag represent something else, i.e. fifty stars represents the 50 States.  I told my son that he would be making a flag that would represent him; a flag that would describe who he is, what he likes, etc!

We drew out a tree map to help him sort out what kinds of things he could share on his flag, such as his age, likes, favorite food, favorite color, family members, etc.

Next, I tried to get him to think of ways he could represent those things by pictures or symbols.

I gave him a pennant shaped piece of heavy marker paper and colored makers and "let him do his thang!"  I decided to join in the art project, too and made my own flag!
After we were all done creating our personal flag, I poked a skewer through each one.  Then we each took turns sharing what the pictures represented!

Be sure to check out the rest of the back-to-school themed activities from the 2nd grade Blogging Team!
I'd love for you to follow along so you never
