Rania Matar in 2nd Grade


Rania Matar is a photographer from Lebanon. She likes to document the bedrooms of young girls, some from the U.S., some from the refugee camps in Lebanon. Students looked at multiple images and discussed the differences between the rooms….what was on the walls, the size and color of the rooms, and where things were placed.aerial

Students also discussed foreground, middle ground and background and made preliminary drawings of a room of their own design in order to later make a diorama. Students used a little yellow piece of paper as themselves and made their drawings to scale with their mini-me.
