Can't tell you how much I appreciate this article with organized sites and apps. Thanks for integrating common core and arts and making it applicable.

What a great set of resources. I am a science teacher but my favourite lesson from when I was in teachers college was when the prof had us think of science lessons that fit with another subject area. She had us make an entire unit on space through the arts. They called it Astrocreativity! I tried the lessons a few years later with my own students and they loved it. I am a big fan of bringing in choice assignments where students can use arts in science!
