Product Description
This differentiated activity incorporates the color wheel, complementary colors, art, and coin combinations! Detailed lesson plans and three different levels are included. This activity will match everyone’s level--from practicing combining coins of the same denomination to combining a variety of coins to making change from a dollar. A bonus activity offers high level problem-solving. Students will learn about complementary and analogous colors, while enhancing their coin skills. This activity was inspired by Claude Monet and the Impressionists, whose artwork was filled with bright colors.

This activity is part of a Claude Monet Artist Study, which is a portion of our complete Artist Biography Unit.
