This simple lesson is a great, inclusive, community building activity.
Each student is given one section of a large mosaic poster to colour in. By looking carefully at their matching coloured piece they practice blending and mixing colours as close as they can to original.
Once all sheets are coloured and cut out they are then assembled by the students, to reveal a large multi-colored mosaic/poster/mural, this one being three native birds.
