I AM.......

This is our "I am" project. We are cutting out words to describe our personality and who we are . Although it was messy we still pulled it off. We cut out words in magazines, and pasted them on our papers. We did this because we want to remind ourselves of who we are and what we are capable of doing. We also did it because we wanted to get to know each other better than just some students doing an art project.
