Exploring art with a Mystery
Imagine my surprise to find the book “Who Stole the Mona Lisa?” in our local library and for J to declare it one of her favorite books. She read it over and over. This innovative take on da Vinci’s masterpiece is full of interesting facts, but is also told as something of a mystery about the time when Vincenzo Perugia stole the painting and kept it for two years. Review from Books My Kids Read.

Who was Amelia Earhart? by Kate Boehm Jerome (Biography). This is the biography of Amelia Earhart who was a pioneer female pilot. She set flight records like being the first woman to fly across the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean. Then on one daring flight, she disappeared and was never seen again. I would use this book for 5th grade. My lesson would be to have the student research Amelia Earhart and create a class mural about her accomplishments and her life.
