While most of this site deals with visiting Versailles, students will find sections dealing with the King's daily routine and the life of the French court in the 17th and 18th centuries. In addition, there are images of some of the more notable artwork, and of course, large sections available "seulement en Francais," which we hope will please the foreign language teachers. There's nothing like it elsewhere.

This site offers an extensive collection of lesson plans and other resources for teaching cartooning, caricature, and other drawing skills and styles in a studio environment. The content includes lots of drawing and examples. These are not trivial lessons, so some level of preparation is certainly appropriate.

This site offers a detailed biographical treatment of Escher's work in illustrating perceptual and spatial phenomena and illusions. The site will be useful both for art instruction and for math or science study. We were delighted to find illustrations large enough to show the intricacies of these images. Even younger students will respond to, "What's going on in this picture?" discussions of these images.

The National Gallery's presentation of Egyptian tomb artifacts offers many stunning images that could enhance the study of Egypt at any grade level. The accompanying narrated slide shows (you'll need a RealPlayer) turn the site into an on-screen lecture tour. The vocabulary, however, is "over the heads" of elementary and many middle school students. Visit this one if you're studying Egypt, and decide how it fits best into your classroom.

Art, artifacts, and primary source documents frame this exploration of American Indians during the early 19th century. Through the eyes of artist, ethnologist, and showman George Catlin, students can take a virtual journey through time to meet American Indians of the 1830s. Contemporary experts provide commentary that raises provocative questions regarding the intersection of Native American and European. This searchable, award-winning site also includes lesson plans with cross-curricular connections and links to relevant standards. Created by the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Quicktime required.

Art and History teachers will appreciate this site devoted to unique artistic interpretations of California's many missions. Those in California may wish to add this one to the list of resources for California history. The site would also work well as a sample of one artist's conception of reality, since there are many other mission sites to use as comparisons.

Students reading Twain's books may be surprised to know that he lived in Hartford, not along the Mississippi. This site from the restored home offers a virtual tour, a kids' section with a word search, and some very basic information about the house. This one's worth a look for those interested in late 19th century architecture.

tag(s): architecture (84), mark twain (10)

In the Classroom

Teachers wanting to introduce some of Twain's personal life before or after reading one of his books can do just that with this site. Share the site with students on the interactive whiteboard, watching the virtual tour or examining the exhibits. There may not be a ton of information, but this is a great way to get students started on understanding just a little bit more about the famous author.

A surprisingly engaging site from a private source, this atlas of interesting architecture lets users browse by region, city, or topic - including headings such as "unusual" and "haunted." The results are well-illustrated synopses about buildings of historic or specific interest. The coverage isn't uniform, but what's there is interesting, and could be useful in examining architecture, geography, or world cultures.

Although it would be hard to incorporate their own art, have students make a virtual exhibit for the other art they are to incorporate in the exhibit. Use an online poster creator, such as Padlet (reviewed here), where students can post the images of the art they would include with their own.

Use this site as an supplement to the book "One Thousand Paper Cranes." After the students have completed the book, use some class time to allow students to create their own cranes in class. Introduce the site on the interactive whiteboard before allowing students to explore it further in cooperative learning groups. Once students have created a crane, encourage them to try more complicated shapes and figures! This is a great way to lead into a conversation on the significance of origami and why it was so important in the book.
