We've finished the mural. 4 days. 100+ kids. A handful of adults.
This project relies on child involvement, design and installment. Nothing could be more fun than destroying the school with permission! The other side of this wall is the library. We got in trouble for making too much noise. Doesn't my boy Roscoe look great in pink?!
After the children grouped the tiles into environmental "families" they began to install them, mixing mortar and using trowels like real builders. The story started to unfold.
They were quite sure where everything went. No second guessing. No wondering if it made sense.
After painting the mortar to match the wall we all stood back and wondered...what's next?
That would be revealed the next day.
Enter 7 year olds...to be continured.
