Teaching Science Through Art
We've found the "missing link!" This would make a great "link" between your science text and understanding through art. Or is it really a great science book with art skillfully incorporated? Part of the Art Through the Core series, this is another wonderful cross-curricula books from Sharon Jeffus. The table of contents reads like a science book, with lesson topics divided into Invertebrates, Vertebrates, Plant Kingdom, Earth and Heavens, and Machines. Art and science are a natural combination, as the foundation of both is careful observation. People like Audubon and Da Vinci made a life's work out of thinning the line between these subjects. Over 70 exciting lessons from cells to tractors provide useful information, points of observation, and multiple activities, both scientific and artistic. You could use this as a great elementary science book, or to begin or complement unit studies. The program is available in a printed book or cd-rom, which contains PDF files.
