Hi! It’s Saturday, April 27, 2013 and time for Art at ClickSchooling!
Age Range: 5-18 (Grades K-12, with parental supervision)
The Kennedy Center sponsors this website that provides multimedia activities and in-depth lessons on Dance, Music, Theater, and Visual Arts integrated with other subjects such as Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, Physical Education, and Technology.
When you get to the site you’ll see some featured lessons and a “Lesson Finder” search engine. Simply select:
- Literary Arts
- Media Arts
- Visual Arts
- Language Arts
- Physical Education
- Social Studies
- World Languages
Click “Find” and a new page opens displaying the title and description of the lesson. Click on a title and another page opens displaying the lesson overview and objectives. Then, just click on the arrows to get the instructions and activities with links to resources such as printable worksheets and other materials. Some of the lessons include an online interactive game.
You will be astounded by the scope and depth of the material provided. It is designed for classroom teachers but can be adapted by home educators. There are even tips for how to prepare to present the material to your students in a way they will enjoy. High school students shouldn’t have any problem navigating these lessons independently, although parents (as always) should review the content to determine suitability.
