Medieval Art at the Met & Getty

The Metropolitan Museum of Art has an interesting exhibit on Medieval art.  I developed a simple  lesson, which you can see here, in which the kids examine the artwork, watch a short video explaining the exhibit, and create a five-slide google presentation, using three images from the exhibit and analyzing each one, and writing a brief paragraph explaining how the art typifies the Middle Ages. Since much of the art focuses on religion, the lesson will serve as good  preview of the next lesson on the development of the church in medieval Europe.
