The lesson is a 13 page PDF including directions, photo examples, and the design guide for you to print (eight color pages). Materials Needed: red, blue, black, white, and yellow basic legos of all sizes, Six 10”x10” lego base plates, printed color MLKjr 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.
