Cross-curricular connections are a phenomenal way to help our students develop deeper knowledge. Real life isn’t compartmentalized into just math, just reading, just science, or just art. It’s an intricate collection and balance of all practices and knowledge. We can lead our students through processes that allow these connections to form naturally!
One of the easiest cross-curricular pairings is art and math. Just look at these connections!
So, you see, math and art are a natural pair!
