Read the diary of a young girl whose family moves to France in the late 1800's so that her father can paint with the controversial new impressionists. Here she learns about the culture of France as well as the techniques of the early impressionists. Create paintings that reflect the style and techniques of the impressionists. Practice using a thesaurus to find new words. Learn the rules of commas and apply them to your own writing. Each unit contains both parent instruction pages and student activity sheets for ~3 weeks of daily instruction.
This unit is designed to be used in conjunction with Unit 3: Europe, but can also be used as a stand alone literature unit.
