What makes you special? Are you different or similar from one another? The Cheeky Monkeys children extended their knowledge of the features of their main physical characteristics. First, they looked into mirrors to see what colour their eyes were, what colour their hair was, what type of hair they had, and what colour their skin was. They identified other important characteristics such as glasses, colourful hairbows, hairbands, ponytails, the colour of their nails, and necklaces. When drawing self-portraits the children have the opportunity to accurately depict themselves, develop a sense of self-identity, understand and learn about spatial relationships, proportions, and symmetry, communicate about their work, and become more aware of cultural and individual differences in physical appearance, fostering a sense of diversity and acceptance.
