Third grade students explored concepts and vocabulary shared by dance and science—energy, patterns, and cycles—to learn about dance and the relationship between the sun and Earth. They applied their understandings by creating a dance and reflecting on their experience. This lesson was completed in three sessions (45-60 minutes each) including the creation of the dance, rehearsal, and performance.
