How to Make a Collage

Cutting and Pasting to Make a Collage:

1. Collect materials for your collage. You may cut pictures from old magazines,

newspapers, or print off images from the Internet and use those. If you plan on

scanning your collage to submit it to your teacher, you must use a base that will fit on

a scanner to be able to submit your work. A sheet of printer paper is probably the

best choice.

2. Use scissors to cut out pieces for your collage. Try cutting out words or letters from a

variety of sources to make phrases on your collage and pictures that represent the

different regions of the world we have studied

3. Once you decide where you want to put a piece, use glue to attach the item to the

paper. Continue attaching pieces, overlapping pieces if you wish. You don’t have to

cover the whole surface. Just be sure that every civilization that we’ve learned about

is somehow represented in your collage. You can do a web search or use

encyclopedias to gather additional information to construct the collage if you’d like.

Using additional resources will enhance your understanding of this course.

4. If you will be scanning the collage to submit it to your teacher, let it dry completely

before scanning.

Making an Electronic Collage:

1. Open a new document in a presentation program (such as Microsoft PowerPoint) or

a word processing program (such as Microsoft Word).

2. Search the Internet for graphics to use in your collage. Use key words and phrases

like Ancient Egypt, Stone Age tools, Hammurabi’s Code, and so on. You can use

encyclopedias to gather additional information to construct the collage if you wish.

Using additional resources will enhance your understanding of this course.

Additional resources include digital pictures or scanned images from books,

magazines, etc.

3. Arrange the pictures and text on the page in an attractive and interesting way.

4. Submit the document to your teacher when your collage is complete.
