van Gogh and Mozart

The FDKers have been enjoying my newfound skill - uploading movies to my computer. We have been taking short brain breaks - they love the simple short Shake Break.

But I was surprised at the effect a movie of van Gogh paintings backed by Mozart's music had on the students. We had just finished using our new sound skills to spell words on our white boards. I told the students they could take a few minutes to write or draw whatever they wanted on the boards. I put on the van Gogh/Mozart movie. Silence. They drew quietly, stopping frequently to watch the paintings. They are so cultured:)

Here's a movie I really liked:
