Integrating Art with the Curriculum Areas. A Kit for The Elementary Classroom. Centering On.
Bilus, Phyllis; Sachs, Karen
This curriculum kit contains 115 separate activity cards with descriptions of different art activities that can be integrated into the elementary school curriculum. Teachers may use these cards to select an art project and use it to involve students in other curriculum areas, or teachers may select a skill, topic, or subject area which needs reinforcement and find appropriate art activities to meet class needs. Art projects included in the kit were selected because they were adaptable to many classroom situations, involved readily available materials, and have worked for other teachers. Each art project, explained on a card, provides: (1) letters to indicate the areas of curriculum integration; (2) appropriate grade level; (3) approximate time needed; (4) appropriateness for entire class, small group, or individual; (5) materials used; (6) description of steps involved; (7) evaluation; (8) enrichment activities; and (9) motivational techniques. The kit includes both a project index and skill/topic index as well as a bibliography. (JMK)
