ONE of the bike murals is (mostly) assembled, and I LOVE it!
Notes for next time.....
A) divvy up the parts of the mural that have no (or very little) shadow, to finish off the rectangle, and make it look more finished.
B) devise a better coding system for the puzzle pieces! My intention was to have the students put this together themselves, as a collaborative effort. Major Fail - entirely because of the way that I marked the back of the pieces - it didn't work out quite like I had pictured it (I ended up putting most of it together) - but I think I have fine-tuned my plan, so that next year, we will rock this project start to finish!
