Fantastic First Graders~ Claude Monet's Bridge!

First Graders learned about the French painter Claude Monet and his amazing garden in Giverney, France.
 They loved the Japanese style bridge that Monet built himself. It is still there today! First graders used oil pastel to draw their footbridge and then various painting tools to add the beautiful greenery and flowers that Monet took pride in caring for in his garden.
Sponges were used to create the clouds and foliage and fingers and q-tips were used to make the flower blossoms.
 They turned out beautiful! I think Monet would have been proud:)
