A Collage is an artistic arrangement of carefully selected images. A Collage obeys elements of design and portrays a mood and theme.

Rationale: A collage will allow visual learners to focus on images and associate them with characters and events. Research demonstrates that synthesizing information, or taking information and creating new and independent work, increases understanding and retention.

Instructions: Fill at least one piece of 11x17 paper with at least fifteen images selected by mood or theme. Label the object of each image. Use shape, lines, color, and arrangement to create a mood.
