1. A large piece of paper is needed, about 18" x 24" or so, depending on the size of the students. They begin by tracing their own hands just above the middle, and their shoes below.
2. A head is drawn behind the hands. Arms and legs are connected to hands and shoes.
3. All the lines are traced with a marker and colored as desired. I remember this working well for large groups as the tracing gives everyone an equal starting point.
