The Similarities and Differences That Unite Us

Schedule time after the Museum tour for students to self-guide so that they can take pictures of works of art in the Museum galleries. Have students experiment with one of two Web 2.0 tools, Animoto or Glogster, to compare two works of art that they saw.

Students should use their knowledge of the tool to comment on cultural similarities, differences, and artistic styles by comparing and contrasting two paintings that are representative of a life cycle event or daily activity.
