With Prism.K12 interactives

Experiment with Prism.K12 strategies! Shake Up K12 provides a fun way to brainstorm ways to integrate the arts into your lessons.

Use Prism.K12 strategies to enhance an existing lesson or to help you start from scratch. Prism.K12 strategies can help you brainstorm a single lesson or a longer unit. Roll the virtual dice and brainstorm arts-integrated lesson ideas. You may also log in to save and share your lesson idea with other educators and on social media!

 

Before You Begin

  1. Review the Prism.K12 strategies.
  2. Explore lesson ideas developed from the Prism.K12 educator community (log in to view).

    • How will the arts-integrated lesson cater to multiple learning styles?
    • How can you tailor the lesson for a specific grade level?
