Lowell Elementary School
Arts-in-Education Project Integrating Science and Art
Using information from presentations by a paleontologist, a geologist, and a hydrologist, Niki worked with a core group of thirty 5th grade students to create the mural. The project included construction of a timeline of factual information showing when, where, and which dinosaurs were found in the local region; and a trip to the Southwest Museum of Dinosaurs.
Partial funding for the project was provided by an arts-in-education grant from the Phoenix Arts Commission. The Commission can assist in bringing a project like this to your school!
