The following Kentucky
Core Content for elementary is addressed:
Math, (craft project)
MA-EP-1.2.1: Students will apply and describe appropriate strategies for estimating quantities of objects and computational results (limited to addition and subtraction).MA-EP-3.1.1: Students will describe and provide examples of basic geometric elements and terms (sides, edges, faces, bases, vertices, angles) and will apply these elements to solve real-world and mathematical problems.
MA-EP-3.1.2: Students will describe and provide examples of basic two-dimensional shapes (circles, triangles, squares, rectangles, trapezoids, rhombuses, hexagons) and will apply these shapes to solve real-world and mathematical problems.
MA-EP-3.1.3: Students will describe and provide examples of basic three-dimensional objects (spheres, cones, cylinders, pyramids, cubes) and will apply the attributes to solve real-world and mathematical problems.
MA-EP-3.2.1: Students will describe and provide examples of line symmetry in real-world and mathematical problems or will apply one line of symmetry to construct a simple geometric design.
Science, (animals presented)
SC-EP-3.4.3: Students will describe the basic structures and related functions of plants and animals that contribute to growth, reproduction and survival. Each plant or animal has observable structures that serve different functions in growth, survival and reproduction. For example, humans have distinct body structures for walking, holding, seeing and talking. These observable structures should be explored to sort, classify, compare and describe organismsSocial Studies, (cultures presented)
SS-EP-2.1.2: Students will study a variety of diverse cultures locally and in the world today and explain the importance of appreciating and understanding other cultures.
SS-EP-4.1.2: Students will use geographic tools to identify major landforms (e.g., continents, mountain ranges), bodies of water (e.g., oceans, major rivers) and natural resources on Earth’s surface and use relative location.
SS-EP-4.2.1: Students will describe places on Earth’s surface by their physical characteristics (e.g., climate, landforms, bodies of water).Arts & Humanities, (craft project)
AH-EP-1.4.1: Students will identify or describe elements of art and principles of design in works of art.
Elements of art: Line, Shape, Form, Texture and Color (primary and secondary hues) and color schemes (warm, cool, neutral – black, white, gray, sometimes brown/beige as earth tones)
Principles of design: Organization of visual compositions: Emphasis (focal point), Pattern, Balance (symmetry), Contrast (e.g., black/white, rough/smooth)
AH-04-1.4.2: Students will identify or describe how an artist uses various media and processes. Media (plural) / medium (singular): (used to produce artworks) Two-dimensional - crayon, pencil, paint, fabric, yarn, paper Three-dimensional - clay, papier-mâché
Art processes: Two-dimensional - drawing, painting, fiber art (e.g., fabric printing, stamping), collage Three-dimensional - pottery, sculpture, fiber art (e.g., constructing with fiber, weaving, quilting)
Subject matter: (e.g., landscape, portrait, still life)
AH-EP-3.4.1: Students will experience visual art works created for a variety of purposes.
Purposes of art: (different roles of art) Ceremonial - ritual, celebration, artworks created to support worship ceremonies (e.g., ceremonial masks) Artistic expression - artwork to express or communicate emotions, ideas, feelings (e.g., for self-expression, to decorate or beautify objects) Narrative - artworks that tell stories, describe and illustrate experiences, or communicate ideas or information, art to document important or historical events (e.g., Native American totem poles, cave and wall paintings) Functional - artistic objects used in everyday life (e.g., pottery, quilts, baskets)
AH-EP-4.4.2: Students will choose media to create artworks with a basic understanding of how to use the media.
