ART/READING/SOCIAL STUDIES
Michelangelo Paintings!

After my class read the book, From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, (Book, DVD, VHS) my students wanted to know a little more about the famous artist, Michelangelo. So we did a mini-unit study on his life and paintings. One of his most famous pieces of work, of course, is the painting on the Sistine Chapel ceiling. My students couldn't believe that he could do all that while painting up-side down. To give students an idea of what that might be like, try this idea:

Tape a piece of white drawing paper under each child desk. Next, give each student their own watercolor set. Students then get underneath their desks, lie flat on their backs, and look up at their paper. Students then paint a picture using this method.
