The Great Wave Art Lesson Plan & Video Inspired by the book The Great Wave: A Children’s Book Inspired by Hokusai by Véronique Massenot and Bruno Pilorget and the painting The Great Wave off Kanazawa by Katsushika Hokusai, my fourth grade kids created the most beautiful paintings.

Room 5 are so clever that were able to get this idea very quickly and be creative by putting a spin on the task of the day. Some cut zig zag rows, or curvy strips, or thick/thin... Some choose their colours carefully, while others decided to use random colours.
