Froggies do Giverny

If you were a frog living in a pond why not live in the pond at Monet's garden in Giverny?!
My little first graders watched the video of the book Linnea in Monet's Garden

 Linnea in Monet's Garden
(it is a great resource for first and second graders!)

The backgrounds feature crayon rubbings for the pond and also the japanese bridge and rowboat featured in Monet's paintings. It is a very simplified version of my older Monet's garden lesson which I love but didn't have time for this year.

The objective was for students to create a frog that showed MOVEMENT.
I think they definitely succeeded.

One class did the frogs as a separate project which also came out cute and fun. 
They actually turned out to be like a 'frog self portrait', too funny.
