121. Watery Wonders
What better way to truly learn the Water Cycle? Rather than just showing charts and diagrams, bring the water cycle to life right there in the middle of the classroom and demonstrate it in 3D!
Arts Integrated Education is learning by creating, by doing, by imitation, by enactment…by experience, through the multiple human arts of expression!
Songs To Educate is pleased to promote new learning pathways with Arts Integrated Education.
Art is a verb!
Yes, Art is process first. A painting, a song, a building, a dance, a sculpture… are all end products of a process. Being overly critical of finished results can shut down creative expression, especially in children.
Arts Integrated Learning is often mistaken as ‘arts education’.
Simply put, Arts Integrated Education is learning by “3D blackboard”! It’s bringing a subject, such as the water cycle, out of the textbook, off the blackboard, out of the syllabus and into life! It’s being able to recreate, represent, or reenact a subject through the multiple modes of human expression.
The training for it comes by doing it!
The first principle of Arts Integrated Learning is – Express It to Get It!
Songs to Educate’s Water Cycle Kit includes four interactive songs exploring the wonders of the hydrological cycle, properties, qualities and states of water… in 3D Blackboard style!
Demonstrating the wonders of the water cycle in arts integrated fashion is sensory learning, kinesthetic learning, visual and auditory learning, musical and patterns sequence learning all wrapped into one very practical and fun exercise!
