Digital Pixel Art works on so many great technology skills. While students may be familiar with using snap cubes (or counting blocks or whatever you call them) to make designs, it brings the skill to a whole new level to do it digitally. 10 4th of July designs in 4 different levels for differentiation between grade levels k-5. These would also work well for Veterans Day and Memorial Day.
There are 4 levels for each design.
•Level 1 is the easiest and only includes the colors of that specific design. There are multiple of each color snap cube layered over each other so students shouldn’t have to copy/duplicate the cubes to make the full design. There is also a grid over the design to help students place the blocks.
•Level 2 is the same as level 1 except no grid and less layers of the snap cubes.
•Level 3 brings in extra colors and students will have to copy/duplicate the blocks as only a few are layered.
•Level 4 has only one of each color snap cube
