Aligning Curriculum to Common Core

Updated: Mar 10, 2019

Incorporating science content into The Art of Connection

Building science literacy in the Environmental Art Session


One way to establish the concept of "literacy" is to utilize the Common Core standards.

During an Environmental Art session, the students will be interpreting data relating to art and science content. They will be applying literacy and science knowledge from both Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) into practice as they think about, question, and interpret art and the art-making process and think about the human and natural world. In doing Environmental Art they will be thinking about how humans use the environment, and how humans and more-than-human interact and interconnect with each other and impact one another which cover science knowledge also used within NGSS at an age-appropriate level. In engaging in critical thinking conversations about art, the artwork process, and assessing their work and the art of others, the students are using literacy practices in Common Core for their grade.
