Teaching Impressionism in History

Happy Monday!! I would like to simulate a trip to an art museum as a part of an Impressionism in the late 19th century unit the art teacher and I will be team teaching. I am thinking about just uploading photos of famous pieces of art from this time period, then giving the students a space to write any relevant info regarding the paintings. Does anyone have any suggestions, or any formatives they have created for similar purposes by chance?


Hi @Corrine_Taylor! I am so happy that I have something to share with you. Last year, my 11th graders wanted a break after testing, so we did a brief lesson on Impressionism (since it fit into our lesson at the time). It isn’t an “art museum” tour, but I did use some pretty cool additions to make the formative visually appealing and interactive for the students. Let me know what you think :slight_smile:

@Sarah_Barry…this formative is amazing! Thank you so much for sharing. I didn’t have a clue where to begin! Now I have a whole formative to use as an example! You rock!!


Thanks @Corrine_Taylor! I’m glad you can use it :smile: Don’t ever hesitate to tag me when requesting History specific formatives too!


This has been helpful. Thank you or sharing. Not only did you share a great way to create a formative, you also helped me with ideas on how I can create a goformative for Art History.
Very helpful.

I’ve been to Saint-Petersburg 2 times and that was quite inspiring for students. Though we were exploring classical art. May anyone give us advice on more sightseeings to visit? We were on this tour: https://petersburg.expert/tour/one-day-shore-excursion/. Quite impressive.

Hey thats a really interesting way to use goformative! It would be nice to see how this turned out and see if you have the kids share with each other!
