Kindergarten students learned about Claude Monet's art and the beautiful gardens he created around his home in France. Students used oil pastel to draw the bridge across Monet's pond and then used sponges to add the greenery. They used their fingers to add the colorful flowers on top of the lily pads.

reproduction of famous painting--Done with Post-it notes with Elementary Students!!!

(probably some math in there too?)
