Great Art History Sub Plan: Unscramble The Mystery Masterpiece



Unscramble The Mystery Masterpieces. This is a great art history activity! In these unscramble grid activities, students are presented with a scrambled image of a famous masterpiece. Then each student works to unscramble the grid pieces to produce the final “unscrambled” masterpiece.

Included are options both for cutting and pasting, as well as for drawingwhich makes this great for students of any age and makes differentiation in your classroom really easy.

  1. American Gothic by Grant Wood
  2. Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci
  3. Water Lillies by Claude Monet
  4. The Scream by Edvard Munch

I used this for an early finisher activity. The grids are easy to use! Students loved recreating these famous art pieces.

I have purchased the larger collaborative class mosaics previously and have always loved creating them with my class. These mini versions are not only amazingly engaging for my students, but I love how it reinforces the concept of a grid system to place the squares.
