Come learn about the life and art of Edgar Degas through the voice of his dancing model Marie van Goethem. This interactive site, published by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, contains interactive activities, lesson plans, and free downloads. There are also beautiful voice enabled books that cleverly connect knowledge pertaining to the world of dance with art history. The synthesis of these two worlds is what makes this site unique and valuable.

tag(s): art history (72), artists (76), dance (28), europe (74), france (39), impressionism (4), museums (50), painting (65), sculpture (22)

In the Classroom

The lessons and downloads are perfect for immediate use in the classroom. Use the printable resources and images from this site for your bulletin boards. Ask your students to visit the site and then collaborate to create a multimedia presentation using UtellStory, reviewed here. This site allows users to narrate a picture.

Challenge students to find a photo (legally permitted to be reproduced), and then narrate the photo as if it is a news report. The "Day with Degas" digital books also model how art connects to disciplines and subjects outside of the world of Fine Arts. While studying an artist, incorporate background investigation into the subject of their artwork. For example, while learning about Mary Cassatt, research the clothing and lifestyles of woman during the late 1800's. Consider using Bookemon, reviewed here to publish this research. The Metropolitan MuseumKids website is an enrichment resource. Be sure to include it on your class web page for students to access both in and out of class.

Create the letters of the alphabet with folded paper. The animated video directions are easy to follow along and successfully create origami. The trip to the local craft store for origami paper is not necessary because Origami Club also provides free printable, decorative paper.

tag(s): alphabet (89)

In the Classroom

Create an collaborative ABC chart for the classroom with origami. This is a wonderful beginning of the year activity for the class. Introduce this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Then have students explore this site independently or in small groups. Take advantage of this moment to discuss strategies to follow directions. Ask students to discuss what style of directions work best for them. Photograph or scan the origami letters with the children and create an online poster using PicLits (reviewed here) or create an online book using a site such as Mixbook (reviewed here). Be sure to post or embed a link to your electronic ABC book on your class webpage for parents to enjoy.

What determines whether a fossil will be created for others to find? This site offers information that fits into your science curriculum at multiple levels, depending on whether students work on their own or as a teacher-centered activity. Use these activities to explore factors in the creation and the finding of fossils. For example, in "Burying Bodies," choose the location in the picture where the animal is found and watch biological and natural events determine whether a fossil will be created. Watch the flash animation and read the written narration as well. Other activities include "Making Fossils," "Skeleton Jigsaws," "Footprints," and "Camouflage." Other links of fantastic information that students often ask questions about can be found within the site.

tag(s): fossils (44), tundra (14)

In the Classroom

You may want to share this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Have cooperative learning groups investigate various sections of this site. Have students use this site to learn the basics of sedimentation and how fossils are made. Use this site to teach students about the jungle, plains, and tundra. Teach about predators and prey. Students can demonstrate their knowledge by teaching within small groups or presenting to the class. A round table type discussion can also identify information learned. Students can create informational media such as digital or conventional posters. For quicker projects, create electronic "posters" or word graphics for adopted word using tools such as Piclits (reviewed here) or Typogenerator (reviewed here). Continue the discussion with information about the local soil type and animals to make comparisons of fossil finds. Create a model replica of the sedimentation that would occur as a student project.

Turn your photographs into a three-dimensional wonder. Fold Play lets users upload their own photographs into existing templates, print, and then fold them into Kaleidocycles, books, double-sided poly puzzles, or invertible cubes. The clear instructional tutorials and directions make the process painless. Some projects even include video instructions.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): crafts (43), creative writing (171), geometric shapes (165), origami (17), paper folding (5), photography (161), puzzles (207)

In the Classroom

Create clever "All About Me" projects while teaching mathematical principals about 2D and 3D figures, line, area, perimeter, and planes. Have students try out this site on individual computers, or as a learning center. The most effective way to use this site is to allow students to work on it in pairs so they can easily assist each other. The tutorials are ideal for an interactive whiteboard or projector because students can follow (and fold) along with the presentation. Have cooperative learning groups create podcasts demonstrating how to create 3D shapes with sites such as PodOmatic (reviewed here (reviewed here). Ask students to explain the folding process with geometric terms such as fractional parts, symmetry, faces, edges, rotations, lines, triangles, angles, and shapes. Foldplay turns math instruction into an art. Younger students may find some folding tasks a challenge, so be sure to provide a buddy for those with poor fine motor skills.

Make gifts for special occasions, such as to thank the school principal or cafeteria workers. Create unique ornaments using student photos. Decorate a "physics tree" or "author tree" using Fold Play ornaments made from images of the concepts or of books by that author.

Comments

I was about to bookmark this site and use it for my Intermediate students. I would consider this to have inappropriate content for students. The site talks about unhealthy attraction to pornographic haiku and lesbianism.

Editor's Note: We investigated this comment and looked through all the Foldplay activities/templates. ALL areas are safe and school appropriate EXCEPT under "Links and Stuff." The value of the activities in the other areas makes this site worth keeping, even if you must monitor to avoid the "links" area. We have also contacted FoldPlay to explain teacher concerns.

Do you need a coloring sheet to go along with your themed unit? Or perhaps students need a particular animal or object for their reports? This site is loaded with hundreds of coloring pages, from aardvarks to zebras, from dinosaurs to careers. You name it, there is probably a printable coloring page waiting for you to use. Find the wealth of coloring pages by clicking on 'themed categories.'

There are some small advertisements at this website.

tag(s): colors (80), preK (291), printables (38)

In the Classroom

Use this website to find coloring pages. If laptops (or the computer lab) are available, use the interactive online coloring activities to talk about color, topics studied in science, or other thematic units. Special ed teachers may find these activities helpful in teaching color names, as well. As you are teaching young students about various careers, use the accompanying coloring worksheets for art and/or writing projects.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art offers visually rich and powerful interactives to learn about art, artists, and the world around us. The collection of interactives is organized into "channels" for different age groups (see the pulldown at right). Built around the world-class collections of the museum, the Met provides interactive activities on many topics, from the Knights of Central Park to Degas. Teachers can also find lesson plans related to the museum's collection by Selecting Educators from the "Learn" menu. In addition to the Interactive media, there are also videos and audio/podcasts to explore. See the KIdsZone audio for family-friendly listening connecting artworks to familiar stories. Free (optional) site membership allows you to collect "favorite" items in MyMet.

tag(s): museums (50)

In the Classroom

Explore by age group or topic. The interactives lend themselves to whole class viewing with a projector, small group use on an interactive whiteboard, or partner exploration on class computers or laptops. Base a hands-on art activity around the interactives for a multicultural tour or discussion about art styles around the world. Create a classroom art gallery of student art in time for Open House. Don't forget to take digital pictures for your "archives" and as examples for another year. Keep them on your class Gallery wiki or have students narrate them as the Met does using a tool such as Thinglink, reviewed here.

In the Classroom

Share this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector and allow students to manipulate the program. Share this site with the Art teacher in your building as a resource for teaching color. Photography teachers may want to use this site to reinforce color concepts and changes that can be made with digital photography software. IF you teach about light and the color spectrum in science classes, this site will give students a "hands on" way to "see" color.

The goal of this site is to educate youth about philanthropy and giving their time and knowledge for the global good. To do this, they offer over 1400 free lesson plans for teachers, parents, and community leaders. Lessons are coded to state standards and can be searched by grade level, keyword, subject, or academic or philanthropy standard. Some lessons are geared toward private or religious schools and are clearly labeled as such. Lessons include subject, key concepts, vocabulary, objectives, materials needed, approximate time, procedures, extensions, handouts, and much more. An example of a grade 3-5 lesson would be Cool Kids Compost which explores responsible use of resources by gathering data about lunchroom waste. Don't let the concept of philanthropy keep you from exploring the site, there are many great classroom lessons available for all subjects.

Give students a taste of the Victorian celebration with this site showing greeting cards from the Victorian era, and explaining the Victorian origins of many of today's Christmas traditions. We wish the images were bigger, but this is a nicely designed introduction to Victorian celebrations.

In the Classroom

Use this website during a unit on Christmas or Victorian history. Consider having students create their own online Victorian "albums" using a tool such as Mix Book (reviewed here).

This beautiful French site documents the discovery and preservation of the ancient cave paintings discovered in caves outside Lascaux. The site contains explanations of the ancient people who likely created the artwork, its symbolism, and the science behind its preservation. It's an interesting blending of science and art.
