I used to teach 7th grade medieval world history along with all the 7th
grade art in the school. It was a blast to combine art with social studies,
math and science!! Have fun!

Subject: Middle School Curriculum/Lessons
I am looking for interesting interdisciplinary lessons for the middle school
level. I want to teach painting, drawing, handbuilding and relief printing.
I would like to do lessons that integrate math, science and writing. I will
be working with a limited budget so creativity and simple materials will be
the foundation for these projects.
