Two great articles that reinforce the impact of creative learning…

These two articles highlight the Fort Garrison, Maryland school district, one of a few schools around the country that are forging the path towards integrating arts education into the regular curriculum.  From Education Week, “Schools Integrate Dance Into Core Academics” describes how dance can help elementary school kids think creatively about scientific concepts such as photosynthesis.

At DanceTeacher.com, “Science with Dance in Mind” describes the new program, Teaching Science with Dance in Mind, created by non-profit organization Hands on Science, that is being launched at Fort Garrison and three other schools in Baltimore County.
