Grades 5/6 started the year off in art class by creating a “similar element collage.”  The task was to create a paper collage not with a particular subject in mind, but to find things that have similar elements such as lines, shapes, colors, textures, and/or forms, and piece them together.

The pieces had to fit together much like a puzzle: each piece connecting with the next and looking as if they fit together.
