Hi! It’s Saturday, March 9, 2013 and time for Art at ClickSchooling!
Age Range: 6 and up (approximately, with parental supervision)
The Metropolitan Museum of Art offers this free, online, read-aloud, short story about an inquisitive red-headed boy’s adventures in the Museum and the four pieces of artwork he encounters there.
When you get to the site you’ll see the storybook cover. Just click on the arrows to read the illustrated story.
When you’re finished reading the story, look for the menu directly below the storybook screen, and click on “About the Art.” A new page opens where you can learn more about the art featured in the story. Unfortunately, some of the links to learning more about the artwork aren’t working – so, I took the time to find the links as follows:
Arms & Armor (This is a gateway to the Museum’s collections on armor.)
Note: Should you have trouble opening any of the above links, just go to the Met Museum’s home page at www.MetMuseum.org and enter the name of the artwork into the search engine.
