Civil War - Recreating "Scott's Great Snake." J.B. Elliott's cartoon map is one of the most recognized paintings of the Civil War era. This recreation will be a great addition to your lesson on the Civil War, Winfield Scott, and/or the North and South. This iconic image will be recreated by some of your students square by square from the grid that has been laid out over Elliott's cartoon map and then displayed as a huge mosaic on the wall.
I have many students who enjoy drawing and art-related challenges and I'm sure you do too. This image gets printed out square by square, cut, and taped to the wall. Students then voluntarily choose which section from the 30 squares of the image they'd like to recreate (it is fun to have teachers participate too!). Even students who don't feel they are great at drawing want to participate by choosing a square that doesn't have a lot of detail. When they show me their completed image I have them cut it out and tape it to the wall in a grid I made of tape.
