Defining Arts Integration

Integrating the arts in the curriculuminstruction in which arts-related concepts and
activities are infused with other academic
areas (Center for the Applied Research and
Educational Improvement, 2003).

They must be able to think critically and creatively.
They must have organizational skills.
They must be able to work well with others.
They will need to be self-confident, self-motivated, and
self-disciplined.
They will be required to understand and use Mathematics,
Science and Technology.
They will need to be highly effective communicators.
They will need to understand and appreciate cultural
diversity

Research Findings
 Research has made connections between the arts and academic
achievement, particularly when it comes to three areas: listening to
music and spatial-temporal reasoning; learning to play music and
spatial reasoning; and classroom drama and verbal skills (Mason,
Steedly, & Thormann, 2005).
 Arts integration involves instruction combining dance, drama,
visual arts, creative writing and music with academic subject matter
(Southeast Center for Education in the Arts, 2009).

Lesson Focus:
Integrating Math, Visual Arts, and Technology Grade 4
Standard: CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.G.A.3
Mini Lesson: Introduce lesson with an engaging
Recognize a line of symmetry for a two-dimensional figure as a
line across the figure such that the figure can be folded along
the line into matching parts. Identify line-symmetric figures and
draw lines of symmetry.
EQ: 1. How can students identify symmetrical objects?
Performance Task/Work Time
Students will work at learning stations
targeting the in depth knowledge of lines
of symmetry. Identify objects around the room,
photographs, technology website, hands on craft
activity (butterfly).
Here is how to incorporate technology……….
Technology Connection:

Video record students demonstrating symmetry
through body movements and positions.

Technology website identifying objects of
symmetry

Multimedia sources
opening. Mirroring movement activity or show video
on symmetry
2. How can I relate symmetry to real world concepts?
Suggestions:



Incorporate music and dance
High Museum photos showing lines of
symmetry
Model paper fold that demonstrates
examples of symmetry
Closing


Students share what they learnedExample: oral presentations, artifacts,
and use of active board to demonstrate
understanding of objects with lines of
symmetry

Arts Integration & Technology
21st Century Skills
Rigorous, Relevant, Relationships
CONNECTIONS



The student makes connections to other
disciplines and the world through the
visual arts (National Standard 6).
The student makes connections from the
world of art to other areas of learning
and personal endeavor.
The student informs study and production
of art by integrating information and
skills from other areas of knowledge and
academic disciplines (e.g., math, reading,
English Language Arts, social studies,
science, music, dance, theater arts, world
languages, career awareness, and
technology).
Make learning Relevant
Narrative writing ELA, Math
Symmetry identify in photo
Drama develops higher order language and literacy skills as students act out
historical or literary figures, they immerse themselves in a theme and can
explore and learn about it in a personal way.
Music enhances language learning by teaching students about rhythm, pitch,
and sound. Rhythm helps students learn rhymes and develop phonological
awareness — components of reading. Repetitive songs help teach academic
facts to be memorized (like the multiplication tables) and help make the
learning experience easier and more enjoyable.
Fine Art experiences develop literacy, numeracy, and writing skills. Drawing
and painting reinforce motor skills and can also be a way of learning shapes,
contrasts, boundaries, spatial relationships, size and other math concepts.
