The eighth grade are learning about the American Revolution right now. One of the lessons I teach is how Paul Revere created his famous Boston Massacre print. The students had to take what they learned about the Boston Massacre and create a print that reflected a Loyalist point of view.
The students created a sketch of their picture and then recreated it by carving into a styrofoam plate. They then covered the plate with marker and pressed to paper. Some students were really creative and used several different colors on the print.
