Interdisciplinary Lesson Plans
Created by K-12 educators for K-12 educators, our interdisciplinary lesson plans activate art as a learning tool to achieve curricular and creative thinking goals across disciplines!
In Summer 2021, Carnegie Museum of Art launched a unique residency allowing 11 K–12 educators who teach across disciplines to spend three weeks at the museum. Residents worked in small, grade-based clusters with museum educators to explore the museum as an educational resource to support classroom learning and experience creative recuperation.
Residents produced a number of interdisciplinary lesson plans, ranging from music to Mandarin to algebra and more, using artwork as a foundation.
Download and adapt as you like; you know your students best! The museum is your resource.
