Collaborative MLK Grid Drawing- Fifth Grade

Fifth Graders at the J. W. Killam School learned about the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King and then worked together to create this stunning portrait.


Each student drew their own grid piece using a small version of their assigned grid cell as a reference.  Students needed to use a coordinate map and teamwork to make sure their drawings lined up with neighboring cells.  Once the pieces were drawn and cut out, students outlined their drawings with Sharpie and selected a color they felt represented themselves.


It was beautiful to watch the cooperation, encouragement, and excitement as students saw this collaborative work honoring Dr. King come to life.
