3rd and 4th Graders at Herrera created animal mosaics!!! I let them choose any animal of their choice and then they sketched out a very simple drawing on white paper. I reminded them to fill up the whole page, draw simple (no fine details) and draw big!!! After they sketched it out we used PAINT SWATCHES (that were donated) to create the mosaic. In each color of the Mosaic we used different shades of that color to create interest. This project took us longer than we had anticipated, however, I think the results came out beautifully and show all of the effort that was put into each tile.
