Helen Keller Collaboration Portrait Posters. These activities are intended to complement/supplement any lessons on Helen Keller. These posters are the perfect way to start a unit or to cap one off.

They are an engaging and an entertaining way for students to work together to create a large poster of Helen Keller! They make a great classroom focal point and a lasting example of collaboration for your students. There are two options so you can choose what works best for you and your students!

The final posters are great for bulletin boards, hallway displays and visual inspiration to your students – and they even make great sub plans and morning work.

Recommended for any grade or discipline as there are 2 poster options available - coloring (for lower grades) and drawing (for older students/art students). Plus there are a variety of bonus resources included in this product for early finishers or as extensions.

Resource Details

Poster #1: Helen Keller Collaboration Poster: Coloring


This lesson is very easy. Each student is given one section of a large mosaic 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 mosaic/poster/mural of Helen Keller. You will need crayons, colored pencils or markers in yellow and purple.

Poster Details

  • There are 30 pieces.
  • Each piece fits on a regular 8.5" x 11" piece of paper.
  • The final poster is approx. 35" x 42" depending on your printer settings.
  • You will need markers, crayons or colored pencils in yellow and purple.

Poster #2: Helen Keller 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 lesson, each student will draw their own grid piece using a small version of their assigned gridcell as a reference. Once the pieces are drawn and cut out, the classroom poster can be assembled. This lesson engenders a lot of cooperation among students to get all of the drawings within the individual gridcells to line up well and to produce a nice looking final poster of Helen Keller . This is all about working together!

BONUS Activities:

Group collaboration posters are a lot of fun and leave a lasting impression. However, students don’t get to walk away with anything tangible to show their families. I have created a variety of handouts that individual students can work on when they are finished with their poster piece. This is also very useful for early finishers.

The handouts are for a variety of 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).
  • Conversations with Helen Keller coloring page.
