Getting Organized

The cards are color coded for the level.

Level 1- Black outline

Level 2- Blue outline

Level 3- Orange outline

1.Print, cut, laminate the cards in the levels of difficulty you want for your students.

2.Put the cards on a ring or in a task box.

The materials that can be used for these tasks are nearly limitless. They just need to be relatively small and have the right color selections.

1.Have a place in your classroom where you store these materials for quick access.

2.Challenge students to come up with resources to complete the designs.

Level –

Provide students with one of the Small Motor STEM Mats and the full pixel designs. Students will recreate the design using any material they have available.

Level 2-

Give students design constraints by limiting their materials and providing them the pixel designs that require them to finish the image by mirroring the other half.

Level 3-

Require students to go without the grid and recreate the designs with limited materials.

Collaborative Option-

Students work in pairs where one holds the design card and dictates to the other student which color(s) to put in which spaces on the grid. Communication is key!
