I keep coming back to this project year after year. I love that students have to work together toward a common, artistic goal. It really pushes some students to let go of their perfectionism, as we talk a lot about how all students’ art styles will be included on the murals. In addition, the results become beautiful additions to the school hallways! You can even try this lesson with younger students. My first graders had a great time with it this year.
