Really big beach towel

Act One: Check out this beach towel!  What do you wonder? What would you like to know?


Towel project by Misael Soto.

Miami artist, Misael Soto (pictured on the left below), created this giant art project to make a statement about people sharing territory at the beach.

In the morning he brings sunscreen, snacks, drinks, and games to share and … lays out his towel.

Act Two: Study these pictures to see what you can figure out.  You can click on each picture and see it larger (as a class); students can view all five pictures on this Google doc; or you can print out this handout of the task: BeachTowelActivity-guide.pdf for students to work with alone or in groups.
