This collaborative lego mural of Frederick Douglass is designed to teach students to work collaboratively, create art with new media, and use the grid of a 32 brick by 32 brick plate to match a design printed out showing a 32 x 32 brick design (1:1 ratio-no scaling needed).
The lesson is a 17 page PDF including directions, photo examples, and the design guide for you to print (eight color pages). Materials Needed: orange, red, white, blue, and black lego bricks (you can switch out colors if needed) basic legos of all sizes, Six 10”x10” lego base plates, printed color Frederick Douglass lego sheets.
The final mural is 20" wide by 30" tall. It can be mounted with adhesive velcro to illustration board and displayed on an easel or mounted to a bulletin board using T-pins.
Hint: While students are working on their mural they could listen to the biography of Frederick Douglass and the role he played to help end slavery.
