WOW! A friend just showed me a neat website Art Project powered by Google. You can tour museums and see the art work. This would be a wonderful tool to use in the classroom. Just imagine schools no longer have to store paintings, teachers no longer have to search for the image to show their students because they are all in one place and just need to be projected on the wall. You can zoom in to see the individual brush strokes or walk through the museum and view all the paintings. They have a list of museums from around the world and a large selection or paintings to view.
Here is a Samples:
Van Gough's Farmhouse in a Wheat Field.
See how far you can zoom. You can see the individual brush strokes.
This is a great teaching tool for any grade.
