Turning STEM into STEAM
Science * Technology * Engineering * ARTS * Mathematics

Elementary Teacher, Janet Liimatta, shares reflections after participating in an artist-in-residency with Story Tapestries Master Teaching Artist, Arianna Ross:

With the PreK and Kindergarten age group, we focus on how systems require things to work together. If something goes wrong within a system, it can prevent the system from working. On her first visit, Mrs. Ross helped the students use drama techniques to build living machines to demonstrate this concept. After brainstorming what type of machine we should build, each member of the class created a motion and a sound that they would act out. As students were added, the machine came to life

For the next two sessions, we explored systems in nature. Students used scarves and their imagination to build a butterfly garden. With a partner, students looked for caterpillars, chrysalis, and butterflies. I enjoyed seeing the students sniffing the scarves as if they were flowers. They were totally committed to the scene. Our next adventurewas to take an imaginary trip to the Chesapeake Bay to learn about the water cycle. Students created a dance to represent three phases: evaporation, condensation, and precipitation. A week later, my pre-K students were able to identify the phases again without any additional instruction. This was a very powerful moment for me as a teacher, reinforcing what I already believed about arts integration.
