{ Our results: Stuff The Science: The methodology of classification. Explore 1 Categorize Each student chooses what categories they want to use. Encouraged to describe the relationships visually. Place stuff on the grid to reflect categorical relationships. Primary Category
Secondary Category
Tertiary Category FUSING SCIENCE & ART The Science is Nature. The Art is Bookmaking and Field Sketching
Field Sketching: Observe sizes, shape, texture and proportions.
Understand textures - real & simulated (making rubbings or drawings).
Book making - Folded book form. The Art is in visualizing what has been categorized. science art Remember: and subsequently: lots of small stuff think inquiry art making helps students to learn... Microbiology The Science: Biology (study of small creatures) Redo... Students placed the stuff on the paper as they found it. Students reevaluated & re-categorized. 2 The stuff was reburied and refound multiple times. 3 Art can be fused with most subjects.
Students love 'doing' as a way of learning.
Collaborate with each other. Fusion Examine Build Imagine Teach Do Experience in the arts is invaluable to learning the 21st-century skills of creative problem solving, collaboration and willingness to try new things. (Zwickel, 2013)

The acronym STEM has been altered by adding an A for arts. STEAM incorporates arts into science education encouraging the innovation and experimentation that is essential for future generations. you can do this too... 1 2 3 4 Wrap up: INTEGRATING ART INTO
takes a science concept
and encourages students to
learn by making art.

The goal with this presentation is to introduce educators to the idea of
fusing science and art with
examples and simple
guidelines for doing
it on your own. Bury in a sandbox.
Or hide around the room.
Or use one black sack for everyone. Found random small stuff.

Similar in size, but different colors, materials, shapes.

Variety of types of objects.

Hid random stuff in a sandbox.

Students find the stuff. army men
large buttons
chess pieces
plastic animals
a variety of balls
toy cars
any thing small proximity
venn circles There is no
wrong answer. Categories are completely subjective. People make and use bridges. What is the science of bridge making? What is the art of bridge making? 1. Search the internet or books for pictures of bridges.

2. Pick your favorite.

3. Find the size, type and materials used. Why is this bridge your favorite?

4. Field Trip: Tempe Town Lake to talk about engineering differences.

5. How will you make a similar bridge?

Now make it!

5. Make it! wood
glue We talked about:
Reproduction The Art:
Small Sculptures Start with a bottle cap
Larger than a paper tube opening
Must be microb-like; no feathers, hooves, teeth, etc. try new things Have a stated
goal but let the road there be inspired. Art can be added to other subjects too: ENGLISH read a book - build silhouette puppets based on the characters - write a new play. GEOGRAPHY learn to read maps - students into groups - each makes a treasure map - trade maps and find the treasure. MATH Fibonacci numbers and the golden mean

Make spiral art
http://pinterest.com/donnarapske/art-fibonacci-spirals/ BIOLOGY Learn about flower reproduction - using pipe cleaners and paper, make a garden with each reproduction type. Color
Texture Categories can be more abstract. { } This is how we did our build.
Yours can be different. by: Linda S. Krecker and Michelle Mueller References:
