Looking to integrate technology and capture students' attention with a terrific hook? Show them a clip from Discovery Education's United Streaming series "One Minute in a Museum?" There are lots of artists and movements represented, like this one on Joan Miro http://player.discoveryeducation.com/index.cfm?guidAssetId=79EE31A1-5DC3-42FE-8945-8760046B9A78&blnFromSearch=1&productcode=US

This is a great short video clip of Eric Carle showing how he created the Very Hungry Caterpillar book. I use it with my kindergarten classes.

Want to introduce weaving to your students in a fun way that helps them to understand the process? Look for 'Charlie Needs a Cloak' video on Discovery Education. I downloaded it to my laptop so that I can connect it to my projector(bought with Art by Me money) and show it on the big screen. The kids love it!!! It's only about 8 minutes long. If you have a long enough computer cable, you can connect your school computer to your projector. Of course you can always just gather kids around your computer or just show it on your TV via the Aver key.
