Integrating Dance and Movement

Submitted by dorie.thatcher on

As part of the GAINS (Growing Arts In Nebo Schools) program, Salem Elementary 3rd-6th grade teachers have been dancing with their students!  Dance Integration, as with all Arts Integration, is a growing field that employs the arts to teach core concepts in Math, Science, Social Studies, and Language Arts.  Nebo School District and Salem Elementary are honing their skills at Arts Integration!  3rd grade  danced as they learned about angles, rays, line segments, and end points.  4th grade used dance to help remember 3 different types of fossils.5th grade danced their way through Adverbs and Adjectives.6th grade used movement to reinforce how heat transfers:  Conduction, Convection, and Radiation.
