On this day in 1475, Michelangelo was born. Learn more about him here:

Michelangelo painted the Sistine Chapel while lying on his back for 4 years. What do you think that might have been like to lie on your back with your arms stretched out above your head for years and years?

Pretend you are Michelangelo, and create a piece of art on your back using a paper taped under your desk or table.

Michelangelo was an Italian artist who lived from 1475 to 1564 during a period of
history called the Renaissance. He was a sculptor, painter, architect, and poet. His
work had a huge influence on the history of art.

Here are some ways you can be like Michelangelo:

1. Play the statue game: Walk around or dance while music is being played.
When the music stops, freeze like a statue.

2. Create sculptures using PlayDoh or modeling clay.

3. Create your own family portrait.
