PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Ruby Bridges: Collaborative Classroom Mosaic Poster. This product contains two methods for making a classroom Ruby Bridges poster. One a bit more challenging that the other--great for differentiation! I also include a bonus "unscramble the drawing worksheet" to add to this lesson. I have included both options--you decide what works best for your class.

These art activities are intended to complement/supplement any Civil Rights, Black History or Women's History unit you teach. It’s a great way to start up a unit or to cap one off. These art activities are an engaging and entertaining way for students to work together to create a large poster of the courageous child Ruby Bridges. It makes a great classroom focal point!

This poster is also available as part of my Women's History Collaboration Poster BUNDLE: Volume 2.

Lesson #1 Ruby Bridges Classroom Mosaic Poster
This lesson is very easy and is ideal for elementary level students. Each student is given one section of a large mosaic poster to color in according to the instructions on each sheet. Once all sheets are colored & cut out they are then assembled to reveal a large (28 in. x 35 in.) multi-colored mosaic/poster/mural of Ruby Bridges that well-captures the essence of this courageous child. There are 30 pieces in this poster.


Lesson #2: Ruby Bridges Classroom Gridded Drawing Project
This lesson is not hard but is more challenging than the coloring version in Lesson #1 and would be best suited for middle school and high school students with some advanced upper elementary classes. In this lesson, each student will actually 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 (28in. by 35 in.) poster of Ruby Bridges.

The results from both Lessons are stunning!!


BONUS:
I have created a variety of handouts that individual students can work on when they are finished with their poster piece. 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) and a line drawing of Ruby Bridges that students can color in any way that they choose. These are all great handouts to use during the week you are celebrating Ruby Bridges when students finish other work early, as morning work or simply to honor Ruby Bridges at any time!
