Our students read From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. As many of you know, this classic story takes place in the Metropolitan Museum in New York City. Since most, if not all, students may never visit this cultural treasure, I thought it was important to bring elements of a visit to my class. The first app I used was PlayArt. PlayArt provides short videos about one of five famous artists. Students can manipulate pieces of famous artwork to create their own versions. By doing so, the students really had an idea of the artists’ style and focus. Watch the video, and you will be amazed at what you can do!
