Science Through the Arts
An ECT Creative Education Program in Collaboration with the Hitchcock Center for the Environment, The CT River Watershed Council, and other community partners.
Recommended for grades 4-6
Enchanted Circle works in partnership with our colleagues in the sciences to develop arts integrated curricula that engage students in scientific inquiry and investigations. Combining hands-on science with physical embodiment and artistic expression enables students to access, process and interpret science concepts and standards-based content in a meaningful and memorable way.
Our 5-12 day Science Through the Arts programs culminate with original student performances or exhibits for other classes, family and friends.
Curriculum Units can include: Magnets, The Water Cycle, Electricity, Animal Adaptations, Weather, Environmental Science, Earth Science and Plate Tectonics, and Engineering Design.
“My students were able to learn and process science content in a new way, which helped them understand and remember what they learned. Fantastic!” ~ 4th grade Teacher, E.N. White School
“There was a variety of activities that engaged all learning styles. The students continuously were asked to show knowledge orally-physically and creatively (and in written form). I also liked how the activities were based on our curriculum. It was a perfect culmination!” ~Holyoke Public School teacher after science and arts integration residency

“I’ve never worked so hard in my life. I felt like quitting lots of times, and I’ve never been so proud of myself as I was today after our performance.”
