Product Description
U.S. Capitol - Famous Paintings in the Rotunda - U.S. History. This bundle of famous paintings are the eight paintings that adorn the walls of the Rotunda at the U.S. Capitol and will be recreated by your students square by square from the grid that has been laid out over each image.

EACH RESOURCE CAN BE PURCHASED SEPARATELY:
Baptism of Pocahontas
Declaration of Independence
Embarkation of the Pilgrims
General George Washington Resigning His Commission
Landing of Columbus
Surrender of General Burgoyne
Surrender of Lord Cornwallis
The Discovery of the Mississippi

I have many students who enjoy drawing and art-related challenges and I'm sure you do too. Each image gets printed out square by square, cut, and taped to the wall. Students then voluntarily choose which section from the 30 squares of each 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 bundle:

Everything gets printed on standard 8.5" x 11" paper

1 - Full 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.
