Build Mosaics using the Rubik’s Cube

If you can solve one face of a Rubik’s® Cube, you can create some fantastic mosaics!

With just a few cubes or hundreds, creating mosaics is a fun team-building classroom activity. Use our Mosaic Lessons and/or our Mosaic Building Guides to get started.

You can use our ready-made templates or create your own designs. To make a Rubik's Cube mosaic, you don't need to know how to solve all 3 layers of the cube. Students apply the skills from stages 2 and 3 - making a white cross and placing the white corners - to make a multi-colored cross and place multi-colored corners.

Mosaic Guide: Learning The Basics

Booklet for beginners about thinking in pixels, how color works, and algorithms for edges and corners. Includes 3 templates for mosaics using 36 cubes.

Mosaic Guide: Getting Creative

Booklet with algorithms for edges and corners and instructions and tips on building large mosaics using our templates.

The creativity was abounding and all of the math we have learned through this project has made a profound difference. We want to sincerely thank you for this authentic learning opportunity! Dawn Straith Hillel Day School of Metropolitan Detroit
