I'm especially pleased with the way one of the fifth grade activities is working out.
The students were given six images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope and asked to choice which one inspired them the most. They were then given ten minutes working in small groups to develop a piece of music to accompany the image as part of film each class is putting together. Next week they will use the film as backdrop to a movement piece each class will develop. This is the first year I've used this lesson and so far it is a definite keeper.
