Students explore colors through storytelling and dance. In this visual arts lesson, students view the painting "Bird and Cornstalk Rug" and identify three colors. Students express how the colors make them feel through the rhythm of percussion instruments. Students also use movement to express their emotions they get from the colors.
Students practice echoing through dance. In this dance lesson, students listen to a story "Flip and Flop" and then are put into groups of two. One partner is Flip, while the other is Flop. Flip, one student, creates a shape through dance and Flop, the other student, echoes that shape.
Students share dance moves that reflect their personalities or depict how they are feeling, explore popularity of recreational and competitive social dancing by reading and discussing the article "Follow the Flying Feet," present examples of social dancing, research dance forms performed in class, and reflect on which dance styles they like best.
