Knights and Dragons!

Third graders recently looked at several versions of the painting St. George and the Dragon as well as read  the story The Knight and the Dragon by Tomie DePaola. We compared how the knight and dragon from the painting were so different from the characters in the silly story!

They completed these colorful works of art using watercolor paints! After their artwork was complete they each wrote a story about their scene, making a twist on the story of St. George and the Dragon!
