Roman Mosaics

The Romans, during the time of Julius Caesar, instead of using carpets they mosaic designs to cover their floors. They made these out of little rocks and clay pieces pressed into cement or plaster. My brother and I made mosaics today using beans, rice and pasta. First get a piece of cardboard and then get glue and whatever you are going to use to make your mosaics out of. Then draw a design out on your cardboard. Mine is the one of the car on the road and Spark's is a giant fish swimming in the ocean. Next put lots of glue where you are going to start putting on your mosaic supplies. Put on the beans and everything. And then voila! you have a mosaic design like the Romans.
