Areas that naturally overlap and lend themselves to curriculum integration:


Balanced and unbalanced forces (Newtons laws) + Principles of art (Newtons color wheel) (Sept 4) Evidence of chemical reaction (physical) + pencil still life/observation (Oct. 22) Unit 3: Earth and Space + colored pencil skills/radial design (Nov. 12) Topography and how it changes the land + Self-Portrait (Feb.11) Topography + line sculpture (Feb. 19) Environmental effects on organisms + 2-Point Perspective (April 8) Humans and the Environment + printmaking (industrial art/subject matter) (Apr. 15) 1. For Sept 4th, can teaching by relating content to a person of interest help student understanding and retention? 2. For Oct 22nd, do students pay attention to detail in the same manner in different contents? 3. For Nov 12th, what kind of symmetry is found in space? 4. For Feb 11th, can students identify how subtle changes affect designs? 5. For Feb 19th, what is the impact of individual lines in topography and line sculptures? 7. For April 8th, when viewing ideas and objects from multiple perspectives, do students begin by looking for similarities? 8. For April 15th, Can students conceptualize their impact on the environment as they choose resources for printmaking and industrial art?

Five essential questions that emerge:


Narrowed topic: o Humans and the Environment + printmaking (industrial art/subject matter) (Apr. 15) 1. What impact have humans had on the natural environment? 2. What materials or resources cause problems for the environment? 3. How did the Industrial Revolution impact the environment? 4. What does the use of machinery in modern culture do to impact the environment? 5. What impact does manufacturing have on our environment? 6. How does printmaking connect with industrial manufacturing? 7. How can we create awareness of the endangerment of plant and animal wildlife? 1. Consider and discuss the roots of the manufacturing industry. As students investigate, they can arrive at the Industrial Revolution and the development of factories as an origin. Investigate the implications and the effects that we see today. (Students can find images, artwork, advertisements, or public service announcements that are visual examples.) 2. Learn about the process of printmaking and its connection to modern press and other applications. What are potential impacts of materials used in printmaking on the environment? How can we eliminate or lessen our impact? (Materials and process review for printmaking. Eco-friendly inks, recycling test prints, etc.) 3. Students will juxtapose the environment with something that threatens it. (Create a work of art that will require two block prints to be made. The close-up cropping of machinery or manufacturing object will overlay the image of an animal or plant.) 4. Research the materials we use for printmaking. Detail where at least 5 materials come from and their effect on the environment. Continue your research by finding an alternative for each that is more eco-friendly. Would you use these products? For your final project, create a project with the eco-friendly material. 5. Choose one way humans have an effect on the environment; you may take a negative or positive perspective (forest fires,

oil spills, pollution, recycling, conservation). Choose a way to create a product using materials that which mimic the effect. Create an abstract for your product that explains the relation and what people can do to further progress the issue in the right direction.
