How are Dance and Science Standards connected? What can Dance teach us about Science? How can movement help students understand, explain, and remember Science concepts? This residency makes clear connections between dance and science principles like force, motion, gravity, energy, push, pull, mass, and weight. Students investigate and illustrate invisible forces through movement.
NC Essential Standards: Science 1.P.1 Understand how forces (pushes and pulls) affect the motion of an object. 2.P.1 Understand the relationship between sound and vibrating objects. 3.P.1 Understand motion and factors that affect motion. 4.P.1 Understand how various forces affect the motion of an object. 5.P.1 Understand force, motion, and the relationship between them.
