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. Photos of the real suspects, criminal, and crime scene will bring this historical event to life in your classroom. (Don't worry- there's nothing scandalous you won't want your students to see!) Included in this download is a worksheet for your students to make notes about the clues and suspects in the case and make their own conclusion as they listen to the case.

This download includes information about:
Leonardo da Vinci

A timeline of events in the theft
