This week, we had professional development sessions with 1st and 2nd grade GPSD teachers. They learned how to use the Kennedy Center’s ArtsEdge website (which is a fantastic resource for arts-integrated lesson plans) and participated in part of a model lesson from the site connecting social studies, science, and ELA concepts with visual art. Through this lesson, the teachers made their very own rain sticks! Check out pictures and videos below from the two sessions.

Resources from these PD sessions can be found on the “2015-2016 Resources” page, which is under the “Resources for Educators” tab.
