3) Arrange varied content and components to convey purpose and meaning in different media arts productions, applying associated artistic principles.

a. Use artistic concepts of balance and contrast.

Example: Recreate a short scene depicting Hansel and Gretel running through the forest, with some students representing static trees and others performing the moving characters. Balance is created by composition of figures in the frame and contrast is shown by static and moving characters.

5 ) Generate a number or shape pattern that follows a given rule. Identify apparent features of the pattern that were not explicit in the rule itself. [4-OA5]

Example: Given the rule "Add 3" and the starting number 1, generate terms in the resulting sequence, and observe that the terms appear to alternate between odd and even numbers. Explain informally why the numbers will continue to alternate in this way.

Title: Banana Banana Meatball: Pattern Math
Description:

In this activity, students will visit the GoNoodle website and learn a catchy tune about patterns. Students will then demonstrate their knowledge of patterns by collaboratively creating and designing their own pattern and tune in a Flipgrid post.

This activity was created as a result of the Arts COS Resource Development Summit.

Title: Artistic Spiderwebs
Description:

In this learning activity, students will discover how spider webs are made by watching a short video.  Students will compare photographs of spider webs and look for patterns.  Finally, students will create a 3-dimensional patterned spider web using geometric shapes and lines.

This activity was created as a result of the Arts COS Resource Development Summit.

Title: Pattern Pizzazz
Description:

This activity is an excellent reinforcement activity for students to explore patterns using shapes, letters, and numbers. The activity can be used individually or in groups of 2 or 3 students. 

This learning activity was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science University, GEMS-U Project.
