Explain we are going to print tiles of 20 by 20 cm with linoleum and ink. Ask how you can print an entire tile with an piece of linoleum from only 10 cm: by turning the same stamp 90 degrees each time you make a print.  
Explain how a two-color print works: information here.

What should you do?
Step 1: Draw a quart of a tile on a sheet. 
Step 2: Copy the drawing with the carbon paper on the linoleum. 
Step 3: Cut the background away: the image remains.   
Step 4: Make 8 prints on sheets of 10 by 10 cm and let dry.
Step 5: Wash the linoleum and let dry. 
Step 6: Cut extra details out of the image.
Step 7: Print on the previous prints with a different color.   
Step 8: Choose the best prints. Stick them on the cardboard while making a quarter turn each time. 

All artwork is made by students of grade 6.
