Giverny, France

Kindergarteners studied Claude Monet and his Impressionism paintings.  I talked about visiting his garden, which would be amazing.  I read the book 'The Magical Garden of Claude Monet'. They drew out lillypads on black paper and colored them in with green chalk.  They colored the backgrounds with loose brush strokes in blue and white chalk.  Next they made a tissue paper flower in pastel colors, and attached it with half a pipe cleaner through a hole, taped down in the back.  Fun project, kids loved blending the chalk and getting messy.
