This is a resource about calming students down when they are over active. This is a downloadable resource that you can change and edit to your students individual needs.
This lesson invites students to learn and apply formal methods of visual arts analysis to investigate and understand Dan Namingha's Hopi Eagle Dancer They will then experiment with paints in an effort to get a sense of how the artist used different tools and thicknesses of paints to achieve varying effects in the painting.
Students will be able to: identify at least three different techniques/characteristics of the painting; discuss the impact of the artist's use of color in the painting; list and apply methods of formal visual analysis; and use trial-and-error methods to obtain different visual effects.
Still Life, portrait, and landscape are all categories, or genres, of painting which your students have probably seen examples of on their trips to the museum or when looking through an art book. But how much do they know about the genre of genre painting? What genre is Emanuel Gottlieb Leutze?s image of George Washington Crossing the Delaware from the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art? This lesson plan will help students to understand and differentiate the various genres in the visual arts, particularly in Western painting. Students will learn to identify major genres, and will learn to discriminate between a painting?s subject and its genre.
This video resource was developed by Neuroscience students of Wake Forest University. This video is designed for high school students on how the brain's motor cortex works.
In this three lesson unit, the concept areas of rhythm, melody, form, timbre/tone color, and harmony are used. Skills will be developed in singing, moving, listening, playing instruments, creating, and relating music to other subject areas.
In this lesson, students will be given objects and asked to make predictions on how far each object will move after they blow in it. Then they will measure the distance and record their observations in their science journals. After their science investigation into motion students will read Move It! by Jaime A. Schroeder to reinforce the hands-on learning activity.
Compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object and determine if a design solution works as intended to change the speed or direction of an object with a push or a pull.
Driving Question: Can I as “Science Investigator”, engineer and design,
a way to move an object without using my hands or feet?
In this lesson, students will explore motion, rockets and rocket motion while assisting Spacewoman Tess, Spaceman Rohan and Maya in their explorations. They will first learn some basic facts about vehicles, rockets and why we use them. Then, the students will discover that the motion of all objects including the flight of a rocket and movement of a canoe is governed by Newton's three laws of motion.
These slides are used to introduce Ozobot to Kindergarten to use science motion vocabulary and explore robotics in the real world.
Students explore how Ozobots use light and color sensors to "read" the information in order to move.
This is a launching point for further lessons on how to color "code" the types of movement.

British scientist Francis Galton (1822-1911), coined the term "eugenics," meaning "well born," and theorized that humanity could be improved by encouraging the fittest members of society to have more children.
This article describes ways to supplement a science unit on the water cycle with the book Water Dance by Thomas Locker. Ideas for art, writing, poetry, and creative movement are included.

Students will develop jump rope skills including hand and foot coordination, traveling and changing direction, and speed. They will develop heart and lung strength by jumping rope, engage in cooperative group activity, and practice good sportsmanship.
