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.

Title: Exploring Number Patterns to Discover Common Factors
URL: https://aptv.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/vtl07.math.number.mul.lpfactor/exploring-number-patterns-to-discover-common-factors/
Description:

In this Cyberchase lesson plan, students explore different repeating patterns to predict when two or more events will occur at the same time. In the video segment, the CyberSquad examines patterns and beats in music. Students are encouraged to create patterns and draw conclusions. In doing so, they learn to predict the least common factor of up to three numbers.
