Re: curriculum for math and science - Art Integration

Dear Mr. Brod,

I have recently been assigned to a math and science magnet school. I have been searching ArtsEdNet for quality lesson plans and units to do with my students. This is all so new to me as I was previously a high school art teacher. I have found some very interesting lessons and am hopeful those will still be online as I start this new avenue in my career. Here are some lessons I find particularly helpful:

Art and Ecology:
Art & Ecology is both a set of resources for teachers and an online exhibition of contemporary ecological art. I have found some very interesting images to share with my students.
Making Architecture - really fits into my idea of presenting How and Why something works:
Mars Millennium Project is just what I was looking for my unit on Space:
Space Art Through the Ages will give me lots of resources! I want to insure those are there for my students.
Integrating the Art Disciplines has been a very helpful lesson - do keep that one online for me.
Spaces and Places fits right into our curriculum:

These are just a few of the resources I find invaluable - Not to mention the bank of visual resource images that I will share with my students with so many of my lessons.
We have been very appreciative of the service Getty has offered to art education via the ArtsEdNet web site and are hopeful that those resources can remain online. So much work and effort has gone into their creation.

Thank you for your time.

OK Eileen.... Yes, I did have fun responding to you.....If you have the time --- please edit what I have written and get it back to me with your name - and school information....I just need it before the end of the month. I don't have a clue what lessons you will really use - or which ones will interest you - So do take a look and see what is online for elementary..... and I know you will be needing ArtsEdNet Talk - so be sure to include that.

  Hi everyone. After six years of teaching high school art, I've been transferred to teach art (on a cart) at the only elementary school in our district with an art teacher. The school is a math and science magnet school with a demanding principal. I've never felt more unsure of myself. HELP! Don't get me wrong. I'm grateful for the job and looking forward to teaching the little ones grades K-5. Thank you in advance. Eileen in Westchester, NY ---
