torn paper eagles

I love torn paper mosaic projects because:
1. The students are engrossed in little, teeny, tiny, miniscule bits of paper.
2. All projects are successful
3. You can do this project with varying levels of difficulty and varying subject matters.
4. It's a great "filler" when your kids are in end-of-the-year-or-Easter-Break-mode.
5. It's semi-therapeutic (except for the clean-up!)

In light of the recent video-feed sensation of the nesting eagles, we decided to continue our American Adventure unit with a torn paper mosaic of an eagle. These are done on 9x12 paper and we did them in Third Grade.

I love the look of the torn paper on the eagles---this is also a great project to discuss implied vs. actual texture!

  1. These are great! Good way to use up paper from the scrap box. Did you have the students draw the eagle first?
