Kandinsky Angles

Grade: 5  |  Time: (1) 75 minute Math Block

Content: Angle Measurement, Art Observation, Dance Creation

What’s Happening in this Lesson:

1. Students use the See/Think/Wonder strategy to explore a piece of artwork specifically for different types of angles.
2. Students then explore how dancers use angles in their work.
3. They partner up and create an “angles dance” and trace their body angles on bulletin board paper.
4. Then, students practice using protractors to measure and label the angles they traced.
5. They’re assessed both in how they used their bodies to show angles and in their measurement skills.

Energy Dance

Grade: 4  |  Time: (2) 30 minute Science Blocks

Content: Speed and Energy, Dance Movement

Lesson Overview:

Speed and energy are directly related as we see in so many different ways, dance included. In fact, energy is a key element of dance. Looking at dance through this lens allows students the opportunity to apply their understanding of the concept. In this lesson, students create a dance study which uses the concept of speed, energy and movement.

Family Function Dance

Grade: 11  |  Time: (3-4) 50 minute Math Block

Content: Functions, Variables, Inequalities, Dance Choreography

Lesson Overview:

In this lesson, students review functions, variables and inequalities. They will then compose their own equations, correlate them to the human body and movement, and create an original choreographed piece based on their equations. ** It is assumed that students have a solid understanding of functions and equations before launching into this lesson.
