From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler



Students will gather information from various websites and search engines in order to piece together the mystery behind each piece of art that is pictured on the webquest.  They will research and compile the following: 1) the artist; (2) estimated date of creation; (3) techniques and materials used by artist; (4) history and genre of the piece; (5) any symbolism or meaning behind the piece; (6) where in the museum would this particular piece be placed; and (7) any information that a guest may find interesting.  Once the information is gathered and sorted, they will write a report and perform a script in front of the class as if they were the docent describing their piece while giving the tour to the guests of the museum.
