3rd grade recently studied Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh. They learned that Van Gogh painted the town he lived in, as he saw it from his bedroom window, under his stars. When the students began their own starry night paintings, I encouraged them to think about where they lived when they painted their town under their stars. Some of the students live out in the country, and painted a farm, and others live in town and painted a bunch of buildings. Here is a bulletin board of some of the 3rd graders' work.
