The students will be selecting their animal of choice keeping in mind that they will have their mosaic on a piece of black paper. (animals with brighter colors work better)
We will cutting out small pieces of color using magazine paper. What's so cool about using magazine paper is that the students will end up with multiple shades of one color. Another thing that student's will discover that some paper will have words or texture on them and that's okay, it actually will make their animal more interesting.
