Last week I watched the movie Miss Potter (SO sweet) which totally inspired this week's lesson.
We read one of the Peter Rabbit stories, and I told the kids that Beatrix Potter started making her art when she was a child. We all went outside, I had them chose a plant (or Pigo) to draw, and so they did. It was a perfectly gorgeous day for outdoor work. My most favorite part of this day was taking photos of them working in their little settings.
