New DL Programs
Building a Structure (Grades 6-9)
Students begin by exploring the structural properties and geometry of buildings, bridges, and towers depicted in artwork from the Cleveland Museum of Art's collection. They will then engineer a structure found in one of these images by using index cards as building material. This on-camera interactivity also addresses spatial reasoning, measurement, and data analysis.
Weather, Weather Everywhere (Grades 4-6)
This art-infused science program addresses earth science standards as students learn to identify the weather which accompanies cumulus, cumulonimbus, cirrus and stratus clouds. In addition students discover that artists were meticulous observers and that weather systems centuries ago were very similar to what we experience today. Discussion includes air movement, cloud formation, temperature and precipitation.
