2nd/3rd Grade: Slow and Steady Wins the Race

Upon completion of their symmetrical Taj Mahal drawings, 2nd and 3rd grade have started on a tile project inspired by Roman and Byzantine mosaics. While our mosaics won’t feature any gold or religious imagery, they are giving the class a good understanding of the process. Each student requested an image that they wanted to make into a mosaic, and I made a gridded template for them to follow for their chosen reference. It is time-consuming and slow, but the class is very good-natured about the work, and are eager to watch their finished products take shape.
