Randy Barron – Scientific Thought in Motion

Randy Barron – Scientific Thought in Motion

A workshop on how to integrate movement and science throughout K-5, connecting specifically with TEKS.  Teachers can translate many basic concepts in science into meaningful, self-assessing movement activities that put abstract ideas into tangible, visible form.  In lessons that engage students in movement, participants learn the elements of dance and how those elements relate to scientific content.  Participants leave the workshop with a set of immediately useful movement activities for classroom study of the water cycle and the systems of the human body, along with the skills necessary to adapt those activities to teach other curriculum ideas.  Randy guides teachers in easy-to-duplicate lesson plans, which draw upon students’ kinesthetic, visual, and musical intelligence to increase their  achievement in science and strengthen their repertoire of learning and social skills.
