Oh No! The Uffizi Art Museum has been bombed and artwork is disorganized (based on actual events). Students use clues to determine which pieces go with which era (Classical, Medieval or Renaissance). Recently completely revised, this lesson is an incredibly versatile art investigation lesson set that will get students to compare art pieces in an updated, engaging format! It has 3 lesson options, with tons of combinations with interactive Google Slides, Google Docs or completely on paper!

Here's what's included:

1. A highly Interactive Google Slide Presentation that explains how to differentiate art between the Classical, Medieval and Renaissance periods with all of the instructional steps included.

2. A New York Times Newspaper clipping that reports the bombing that took place on the Uffizi Museum in May 1993.

3. A "What A Mess" Graphic Organizer and Art Matching Examples Handouts- Students act as museum curators, determining which artwork belongs to which period. Essentially students "re-organize" the artwork post-explosion.

4. A link to the Uffizi Gallery virtual museum.

5. A Tour of the Uffizi Gallery Graphic Organizer. Students use the graphic organizer to investigate and detail which era the artwork of their choice was from.

6. Answer Keys

7. A Google Docs art Collector Lesson Option with example - Students make a chart of art he/she collected!

8. A paper driven Art Matching Chart that students use to identify which era pre-selected pieces are from.

9. Teacher instructions for three different formats for differentiation!
