This is a winter Visual Arts lesson plan which has connections to ELA and Science. This is a project that classroom teachers could use for Arts Integration! Included is a three page lesson plan PDF and a PowerPoint. Six 30 minute classes or three 55 minute classes.
The Lesson plan includes supplies needed, pacing guide, benchmarks (Michigan, but very similar to the national standards), 'I can' statements, project tips, and a print-out creative writing prompt.
The PowerPoint includes scientific information about the Northern Lights, a link to a great online visual video of Northern lights, and examples of student work to evaluate as a class. The power point does not include pictures of the Northern Lights. I do not want to infringe on anyone's photography copyrights, so I deleted the images off the slides. However, In the 'notes' section of the slide, I included links to the photos that I had originally placed on the slides.
