Mona Lisa

Show your class the Mona Lisa painting and open a discussion on what they think she may be thinking as she smiles?
After you have their input, you could explain that this is probably the most discussed smile in the world and they have participated too!
We would be very interested to hear “out of babes mouths” so to speak..please share what they thought.
Thanks.
