Elementary and middle school students will enjoy this.
Let them try the switch game, too (find five changes from the original).

From Getty newsletter:
Birds and beasts take over the Getty Center this summer! See life-size
animal portraits by Jean-Baptiste Oudry, from the ferocious hyena to
the elegant antelope, and meet Clara the celebrity rhino, 13 feet long
from snout to tail.
