Technology and Visual Art lessons with Common Core Standards, geared to elementary students, grades K-5, that can be modified for other ages and grade levels. Technology focus using the video A Whale's Tale (YouTube - http://bluesteam.org/video/ ) to grade student interest. Students will manipulate several computer application programs and on line resources to build geography concepts and understanding. Visual arts focus with the layout of graphic elements. Activities can be done individually, in pairs or triads depending on technology available and student expertise/objectives.
