We are excited to share some lesson plans created by our arts education intern Jordan Terracciano designed to be used with the current Kirsten Stolle: Only You Can Prevent A Forest exhibition.
Jordan is a senior at the College of Charleston’s School of Education, Health & Human Performance and a future teacher. The Halsey Institute staff are grateful to Jordan for developing these lesson plans that create an avenue for K-12 educators to engage with our exhibition from and interdisciplinary perspective! The lesson plans are for 1st grade Visual Art and ELA integration and 5th grade Visual Art and Science integration. Click here to check out the lesson plans and enjoy the preview of one below.
