Product Description
Pocahontas. The New England Chromo. Lith. Co. is credited with creating the "Pocahontas Save the Life of John Smith" painting, which is one of the most recognized paintings in American history. This Pocahontas recreation will be a great addition to your lesson on the early American history, Pocahontas, and/or life at Jamestown.. This iconic image will be recreated by some of your students square by square from the grid that has been laid out over the painting and then displayed as a huge mosaic on the wall.

**NOTE: I HAVE ALTERED THE ORIGINAL PAINTING BY ADDING POCAHONTAS' HAIR OVER HER EXPOSED RIGHT BREAST. THIS IS A G-RATED VERSION OF THE ORIGINAL SO THERE WOULD BE NO PROBLEMS HAVING IT DISPLAYED**

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.

I have been amazed at how many students volunteered that I've decided to create a whole series of historic images for students to try and recreate so stay tuned for more!

Included in this product:

Everything gets printed on standard 8.5" x 11" paper

1 - "Pocahontas Saves the Life of John Smith" image in grid
1 - 30 numbered squares on image to choose from
1 - Grid
1 - Set of printing instructions
30 - Sections for students to draw (with corresponding number on the back - so 60 total pages, but 30 back-to-back)

I think what I'll do is print out each number, the corresponding section, and a photo of each young artist to tape to the wall next to the finished recreation so others can see who took part in the recreation.
