The Land of the Free Collaborative Block Poster can be used as a fun team building activity for Veterans Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, 4th of July or any patriotic day. Students work together to piece their Land of the Free “block” with their classmates. The result is a beautiful, fun, one of a kind Veterans Day/Memorial Day pop-art to hang in the hall.
You can use the Land of the Free Block Poster as a bulletin board display, hang on the classroom wall, classroom door, hallway, school entrance, library, gym or any place you see fit. This poster will pop and students and teachers will stop to admire your work!
This is the perfect team work activity to promote hard work, effort, team building and persistence! I like to play music in the background while they are working and coloring. The Land of the Free Poster is designed so that each student colors their own block/piece of the poster. When everyone is done, they have to work as a team to put the block poster puzzle back together. Each poster has an abstract background to make your poster “pop”. Your students CHOOSE the colors!
Students will need color pencils, markers or crayons, tape and scissors. This activity is great because they can put a personal art twist on their own block. The included teacher and student directions are very simple to follow. The possibilities are endless with this activity! My favorite part is watching the kids work as a team to try to piece it back together.
This is GREAT for community building and teamwork! Teachers should create a classroom that supports persistence, effort and even mistakes. Hanging the Land of the Free Poster is the perfect reminder for students.
How you choose to set it up in your classroom is up to you J Each student colors one “block” or section of a large poster. This product includes 25 “blocks” or pages to color. I do understand that some of you will have less than twenty five students, as do I. There are ALWAYS students that finish early that are eager to color a second page. I also like to sit down with my students and color a “block”. Print the file ONE time for each class on 8.5×11 paper!
