A group of California teachers recently spent a week at the Sacramento County Office of Education Leadership Institute doing hands-on projects at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento. The educators also met representatives of the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission, the Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts, the Sacramento Ballet and the Music Circus to learn how to integrate arts into lessons and about field trip opportunities. Teachers learned how to use dance to teach about the movement of gases and liquids, and the role of algebra and geometry play in some backstage jobs in theaters.
