Ever since I visited France and Monet's home in Giverny, I have had a thing for his paintings. I bought two prints while there and had them professionally framed upon my arrival home. I've shared these pieces of art with students over the years, along with photos of me standing on the bridge at Giverny overlooking the lily pond. Can you see me?
And whatever I had the children do, I did as well. Of course, they thought I was a fabulous artist, but really....lol These are two of my feeble attempts at reflections. We used chalk to do a simple picture by the water on the top part, sprayed it to get it wet (everyone loved that part and we had lots of fun squirting each other!), and then folded it and put it under piles of heavy books for about 10 minutes. Then we unfolded it and watched the reflection appear. It seemed like magic for the kids.
