Arctic LandscapesSaturday, January 21, 2012
I teach in an arts integrated school and since we started integrating the arts into all core subjects, student achievement has dramatically improved, even in my special ed classroom. We are learning about Antarctica. This week we created amazing landscapes that were inspired from Dali's Moustache. We added in the Southern lights and discussed so many art and science vocabulary. We learned about tints, foreground, middle ground, background, perspective, habitats, Southern lights, and Antarctic animals. We ran out of time, but I wanted to add in fingerprint penguins, but maybe next year.
