Paper Chain Pixel Art
With a pixel pattern and a lot of paper, you can create Paper Chain Pixel Art! My students collaborated to make this AMAZING Viking design (our school mascot). The project is created column by column with students inter-looping a side facing 2 X 8 construction paper strip with a front facing 2 X 8 strip representing the ‘pixel’ to make the chain columns. Once the columns are complete, they’re stapled together to align the rows.

Lego Wall Pixel Art
Believe it or not, this mural is made from THOUSANDS of Legos!
Using a Pixel art design created online, students placed each Lego according to an ELABORATE pixel art design created in Photobricks. While this is an iOS app, the website Brik seems promising as an alternative Lego Mosaic tool.

Pixel Reveal with Google Sheets
This Pixel is SUPER POPULAR with my students at the moment. Built in Google Sheets with conditional formatting, students type in an answer and *POOF* sections of a pixellated image magically appear on the sheet. We started our Pixel Reveal experiences using a FUN Among Us Design shared on the Pixel Art Facebook Group.
and then, as the BILLS made it to the playoffs, I created this to help us with our Science Review:

Sticky Note Pixel Art
Sticky note Pixel Art is a lot of fun if you’ve got the time and resources. Simply gather LOTS and LOTS and LOTS of post-it pads and find some wall space and it’s likely you’ll be able to make one of these SUPER FUN creations! Designing a reasonably sized image is the starting point. This Pixel Art Creation tool by Eric Curtis is a GREAT way to get started!
