Mona WHO?!

Fourth graders explored and discussed Leonardo DaVinci's famous painting Mona Lisa, painted in the 1500's. We discussed her mysterious smile and how it made them feel. I also told them about some of the tumultuous history of the painting, including theft and several incidences of vandalism. Then, they brainstormed puns on the name Mona Lisa and drew their parodies.
