Grade 4 Art

During my daily walk through today I saw fourth grade students in Ms. Fallon's art class studying birds of prey.  It is very exciting to see cross curriculum instruction and the merger of art and science.  Cross curriculum instruction has many benefits.  One of the main benefits is an increased vocabulary.  An increased vocabulary is critical to improving reading comprehension.  In short, art is helping students become better readers, scientists and creative problem solvers.
