Capstone Project (Open Access)

The presence of art instruction in the elementary classroom has been drastically reduced with class time focused on mandated curriculum and standardized test preparation. Art integration, an approach to learning that combines traditional curriculum with art, may not only provide students with opportunities for greater academic achievement and personal growth, but in addition, may provide a solution to this problem. To address this need, I have created a 3-day science lesson that integrates art for first grade students at Olson Elementary School in Marina, California.
