ARE Third Grade Collaboration

Third grade students at Allen Road Elementary School recently took part in a collaborative project for their art and music classes. During their art classes, the students made usable rainsticks and during their music classes, they learned how do perform a raindance. Once the students in-class lessons were complete, the classes got together and performed in front of other grades. Music teacher Kristina Vernyi says, "We also explained what the Rainsticks and the Raindance were used for by tribes. Students also had an opportunity to create their own tribal dance in groups and display it for each other. It was a really great learning experience and a lot of fun!"
