Can you do an art project that connects with our social studies curricullum?

Because students express their own interests in a choice based curriculum, they are free to make connections to all parts of the curriculum. They make connections that are meaningful to them. Inspired by an odd, geometric shaped piece of cardboard 2 boys made a sculpture replica of the Mayan ruins. They thought it would be fun to build pyramids and stone structures out of cardboard and then paint them to look like real stones. These students really understood not only the social studies lessons they learned in their classroom, but how to use that information to build a strong, interesting, and neatly made sculpture in art class. What a connection!
