2nd Grade: Greek Mosaics
Well, I missed "throwback Thursday" but I'll post these today anyhow. These mosaics were from way back when I had a substitute for my maternity leave. I asked her to do it in conjunction with the 2nd grade NYS Listening & Learning strand about Ancient Greek civilizations. This project wasn't exactly executed the way that I would have handled it, but a few of the projects did turn out decent.
I had my substitute use Roylco's Mosaic Squares, something I had purchased a few years back through the Extended Day grant and have never used. I can't find the link to the sticky ones, but those are actually the ones that were used for this, not the paper squares. Anyways, I have decided that if I do this project again, I will have the students cut up construction paper into random geometric shapes to fill in their spaces. I had encouraged her to have the students cut the stickers in half to fit into smaller spaces, but no one did. In other words, I plan on essentially combining this project with the geometric and organic shape collages that my 2nd graders did the year before.
