Mississippi Autumn 2015

The Mississippi River is the second longest river in the United States. This is an aerial view of the river.

This week Mississippi class (year 6) talk about Pablo Picasso and his art.

We’ve introduced a new feature: Repeat at Home, where listeners take part whilst listening at home. First off is Artists where you can try your hand at drawing the famous artwork that the speaker is describing. (To see the images we chose for this game, here you can find Picasso’s Enamel Saucepan and Dali’s Meditative Rose.)

Then you can listen to interesting Facts & Fictions chosen by the students.

Finally, join us to play 21 Questions, trying to guess what the chosen image is in 21 questions or less.
