The pilot project described in this report involved the development of an integrated art and music curriculum model for elementary grades. In this discussion, an example of one integrated unit is described for each of grades one through six. The curriculum units are centered around literary or musical themes that incorporate a variety of interdisciplinary experiences. The themes for each grade that were chosen for the pilot project were: Grade 1, Trains; Grade 2, African animal tales; Grade 3, Native American cultures; Grade 4, Venice in Italy; Grade 5, The Far East; and Grade 6, American folk genres. The students involved in the project seemed to learn a great deal from their experiences through the integrated units. A 56-item bibliography and four appendices are also included. Appendices, which make up the greater part of this document, contain: (1) Curriculum outline; (2) Dramatic scripts; (3) Music: lesson plans and music examples; and (4) Art: lesson plans and color photographs.
