More head shots

My 8th graders really liked the Mona Lisa in the classroom. Well, actually they didn’t like it at first. They thought it was creepy. But eventually they came around and said that I should do the same thing in other classrooms. They got into it while I was cutting out heads during math class and started finding other heads for me to do.


I think I got 4 classrooms done in the first round, but then it occurred to me that the hardest part for me (the cutting) would be the easiest part for Lauren. After all, she actually teaches cutting. I think we did 7 or 8 more classrooms a couple of days later, and now we’re ready to do 8 more.  I think that leaves just a couple.


I was trying to be all sneaky about it (but without having to come in really early or stay really late). I’ve been found out by 2 teachers. They’ve been sworn to secrecy.


I really wasn’t expecting Wally to be all into it.

    I recognize more of those than I thought I would, though to find the actual artwork, I’d have to google “guy with bowler hat and apple” and the like.

      I was thinking of offering a prize for the first person who could give me a list of the artist, painting and location. That way I would have a list of the artist, painting and location.

        Brilliant! Then, in the future, for freshman orientation you could send them on a scavenger hunt to find the heads, AND their way around their new building!

    You funny!

    Would it be too creepy to have the teachers’ heads sticking out of specific places? Cafeteria? Music room? I’d say NOT to do the restrooms or locker rooms? Perhaps the principal’s head could be seen about the school?

    Amazing what you can come up with! I like it.
