I do a legacy mural with each outgoing class of 8th graders in our =
school. It changes yearly, but last year we had a huge roll of canvas =
donated and we created a timeline of world history from the ice ages =
through the present. The arts, sciences, technology, political =
situations, etc. were represented in segments by each of the students. =
We wound up with five panels, 2 1/2' tall by 8' to 15' long. They hang =
in the main hall and are portable so that elementary schools can borrow =
them to take their students on a walk through time. This could be =
adapted so that elementary students could make paper representations of =
themselves, parents and grandparents to place in the timeline and see =
how much history happened before they were born. Will they remember it =
all. Undoubtedly no. Will they have a sense of their time in history? =
I hope so. Many adults and ms. students have appreciated it and have =
been seen to stand and study it.=20
We've done two global ed diversity murals, one in paint around the =
perimeter of the library, and one in clay that is still in process. =
We've also done murals in the cafeteria and halls. I'm very lucky to =
