Currently, my students are involved in a study of rocks and fossils as part of a larger Earth science unit.
|My students thought this one looked like a "butt". Great simile! Gotta love 4th graders!|
This lesson could branch into a language arts lesson, possibly a poem about their rock or a descriptive paragraph.
If you have never thought about using jeweler's loupes in your classroom you can get more information here: The Private Eye.
I'm always on the look out for great ideas that will motive my students and integrate the arts into my science curriculum. Using loupes for close observation has been a true winner! The possibilities are endless! I'll be sharing more ideas as the year progresses. Be sure to subscribe so that I can share these ideas with you!
Do you have a great idea for integrating the arts into your science curriculum? If so, I'd love to hear it! Please leave a comment below!
