It's (Almost) Fall Y'all: Elementary Arts Integration Lesson Plans

View All Lessons Here

Every fall, winter, and spring, I host an Arts Integration workshop highlighting the season through integrated Visual Art lessons. I do this for a few reasons. First, a lot of us educators fall (see what I did there) into the habit of engaging in seasonal "craftivities" and forgo real, rigorous Visual Art lessons. Second, it is SO easy to integrate Visual Art, Language Arts, and Science standards to create seasonal lessons that have rigor and relevance.

If you are local to Modesto, CA - I encourage you to come and hang out with other awesome educators and me on September 11, 2018 from 4:00-6:30 pm as we focus on integrating elements of fall, books about fall, and science standards into classroom curricula and the Visual Arts. Attendees will participate in the making of four full arts projects and will receive lesson plans for four projects. Provided lesson plans align to California VAPA and CA Common Core State Standards.

If you are not local (or are local and just want MOAR fall Visual Arts Integration) here are a few of my favorite lesson from past years:

Fall Y'all Harvest House (Spooky or Non-Spooky)





Paper Squirrel Sculpture
