Center Focus

Millennium Mural

  1. Prior to this center, work with your students to come up with a class motto. A good way to start is by suggesting possible class resolutions for the rest of the year.
  2. As a class, you and your kids should come up with a design for a mural, which will represent this motto. It can consist of one large picture, a series of pictures, or a collage.
  3. At the center, have students draw their section in pencil on a large sheet of butcher paper and then have students choose a form for filling it in. Paint, crayons, yarn, construction squares and other materials may be used to create beautiful mosaics.
  4. The mural will look best if your students use a variety of media.
  5. Have fun!
