I did this one year with a funny photo of our principal. Everyone was
trying to guess as the students were working and as the individual
pieces went in place. It was a fun project.

Sorry, I was away for a couple of days and questions were posted about
my grid "Welcome Back" piece.
I had over 300 students participate, the words were in black sharpie
enlarged from curlz font so the line was varied. The students created a
pattern in color markers over the sharpie or on blank pieces depending
upon what piece of paper they chose out of the box. I mixed the paper
up each class so that the image came together from all over.
I calculate how many students I have to participate in grades 3-5,
measure the wall and divide it up into 4"x 4" squares, create the image
and grid, cut the image and hang the grid in the hallway.
