Gsu lesson plan | Dance | Georgia State University

Choose a science topic that you are relatively familiar with that you think could be best illustrated through movement. Examples include the life cycle of a frog or butterfly, the solar system, elements of the Periodic Table, etc.  Create a lesson plan using the GSU template provided for how you would use the Elements of Dance to guide your students in creating their own dances about your chosen topic.

Important considerations:

Research the science material and plan time in your lesson to introduce this content. What science lessons should students take away from the lesson?

How will you differentiate the lesson for students needing a challenge, students needing extra support, and students with special needs? How would you adapt it for the other grades and skill levels?

Include the cross-curriculum PE Standards, Dance Standards, and Science Standards that should accompany the lesson.
