Resource Details

Poster Option #1: Collaboration Poster: Coloring

 **GREAT FOR ANY AGE** This lesson is very easy. Each student is given one section of a large collaboration poster to color according to the instructions on each sheet. Once all sheets are colored and cut out, they are then assembled to reveal a large, inspirational, collaboration mosaic/poster/mural of Barack Obama. 

Poster Details:

  • There are 30 pieces.
  • Each piece fits on a regular 8.5" x 11" piece of paper. 
  • The final poster is approx. 37" x 45" depending on your printer settings. 
  • You will need markers, crayons, or colored pencils in red and blue.

Poster Option #2: Collaboration Poster: Drawing

** Ideal for middle school, high school students, and art students** This lesson is not hard but is more challenging than the coloring version in lesson #1. In this variation, each student will draw their grid piece using a small version of their assigned grid cell for reference.

Once the pieces are drawn and cut out, you can assemble the classroom poster. This lesson engenders cooperation among students to get all of the drawings within the individual grid cells to line up nicely and produce a nice-looking final poster of Barack Obama. This project is all about working together, and it's all about your students. As the teacher, you don't have to worry about anything—except for some cheerleading and encouragement!  

BONUS Activities:

I have created a variety of bonus activities that individual students can work on when they are finished with their poster piece(s). 

The handouts are for various levels, so you can find one that fits your grade level. 

Included are: 

  • Unscramble the portrait drawing
  • Unscramble the portrait cut and paste (with two grid variations)
  • Barack Obama coloring page.

I hope these extra materials are helpful to you.
