Explorations in Art, 2nd Edition, Grades K–6. Grades 1–6 by Marilyn G. Stewart. Kindergarten by Cathy Weisman Topal.
BIG IDEAS AND ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS
Each unit is organized around a Big Idea and an Essential Question. For example: “Alone and Together: How do people share their lives with one another?” These Big Ideas engage students in exploring the relevance of art in their own lives and the lives of people across time and place.
By learning a process that emphasizes the importance of thinking, planning, and reflection, students go beyond “make and take.” Process-based studios help students organize their thinking and learning as it relates to art and design, language arts, science, and other areas of the curriculum.
STEAM LESSONS AND CONNECTIONS
Each unit includes STEAM lessons developed by a team of experts in science, technology, engineering, art, and math. Engaging, comprehensive STEAM lessons in each unit include student exploration of STEAM concepts through viewing, discussing, and creating artworks.
EMPHASIS ON INQUIRY
An emphasis on inquiry will engage your students, as they explore Big Ideas and Essential Questions through art making and responding to artwork made by others. Inquiry encourages students to make a personal connection with their learning,and helps to construct meaningful ties to learning and inquiry across the curriculum including STEAM, literacy, and the arts.
