And it's a little bigger than I was expecting...
The individual pieces were mounted on larger circular sheets of butcher paper to make the installation go a whole lot easier. One of the cool things about this approach is that the look of the install could be easily altered in the next few days or later on in the year. Just a couple staples hold each of the larger circles to the wall.
Students in 22 classes contributed individual pattern circles to this project that focused on unity and variety. Throughout the activity, I stressed that no matter what size or color shape the student was working with, they were all as equally important as each other.
I'd have to say this goes for our school community as well:)
I'm into my regular rotation schedule now, so stay tuned for some very striking 1st and 4th grade projects in the next couple weeks!
