Tile Murals

I am interested in having fourth grade students create a
mural using 100 plain tiles from the hardware store
approximately 6"X6". Does anyone have any ideas or
suggestions for this adventure? I plan on using a paper
grid and then transferring their drawings to the tile using
carbon paper. Next, they'll use glazes and I'll fire the tiles
in the kiln. I saw a presentation of this process at the
Texas Art Ed. Conference in November, 1994, but of
course the handouts have mysteriously disappeared from
my file folder.

Thanks in advance for your help!
