“Can Utah History integrate the Arts with STEM? – You Bet!” K–6, with focus on 4th grade

Social studies provides a way for the Arts to ingrate STEM integration with Utah stories interpreted through literature (short stories & poetry}, music, visual art, and video. This allows teachers  to connect history with other areas of knowledge in a way that also reinforces many learning strands including character education. An arts performance will also be part of the session.
