PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Follow the clues of the stolen Mona Lisa and see if you can determine who the real culprit was. Students will examine the top suspects in the greatest art theft in history and write about who they think took the painting.

This lesson has been carefully researched for historical accuracy. The facts, suspects, and evidence are true and have been simplified so students can learn about a real crime as well as art history.
