A lesson on stolen art

A few months back I had to teach a lesson around the topic “museums”. I found it hard to find something I thought my students would like. That’s when I came up with this idea.

I used this with a higher kids class (pre-intish) and they seemed to really enjoy it. I was actually pleasantly surprised at how much they enjoyed it. However it can be adapted and used with other levels/ ages too.

There is a suggested running order but this doesn’t have to be followed and you can pick and choose what you want. I found that in the “quiz” section if you convert the amount into students’ local currency, it can have a greater effect. You could also get your students to write a painting review at the end opposed to an article.

Check it out! Here are the links:
