California Missions

So part of our history here in California is the settlements of the Missions. We are learning about the explorers that traveled
West and came to New Spain for the first time. Upon arriving they met the Native Americans that were living here. 

My students are really having a great time learning about the history that happened
right here where we live. We have two missions close to us here in CA, Mission San Diego and Missions San Luis Rey in Oceanside. We have an art program at our school where parents teach a lesson to the class. This was was perfect for what we were learning about. Below is a picture of the real mission and below that are my students drawing. It was a directed draw and then they used oil pastels to add color!!
