The Thanksgiving Collaborative Block Poster can be used as a fun team-building and holiday activity. Students work together to piece their Thanksgiving “block” with their classmates. The result is a beautiful, fun, one of a kind pop-art to hang in the hall for the Thanksgiving holiday.
You can use the Thanksgiving 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 Thanksgiving activity to keep your kids calm before the holiday break! I like to play soft music in the background while they are working and coloring. The Thanksgiving Block 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 doodle background to make your poster “pop”.
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 students 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 Thanksgiving Block 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 16 “blocks” or pages to color, I have also included some other Thanksgiving designs in the event that you have more than 16 students. Print the file ONE time for each class on 8.5×11 paper!
•16 different blocks to color (1 per student)
•Extra pictures to create a border for as many students as you need

The final poster size is around 32”x 36”(that’s almost 3 feet by 3 feet of colorful, creative student work!)
