I was looking for a project that would keep my 7th graders engaged, and creating their own "Ugly Dolls" was just the ticket. Ugly Dolls were created by David Horvath and his wife Sun-Min Kim. Check out the cute story of how they originated at: www.uglydolls.com/#/about/
Here are a few close-ups of my students' work. They also created an environmet for their dolls and filled out a worksheet that described their dolls name and charateristics. This project was a big hit!
