LifePractice PBL: Arts


Remember how closely you followed a recipe when you learned to cook? And now you use recipes mostly for inspiration and general guidance? These LifePractice PBL recipe cards are just like that, with a delicious anchoring artifact you know your kids will love, and listing of content "ingredients" you know will deliver quality nutrition to your students' minds.

Our LifePractice PBL recipe cards for Project/Problem Based Learning are built specifically for K12 use with groups or individual students. Each card features an intriguing problem where students are able to then integrate core content, such as Math, Science, Social Studies, Reading, and Writing into their solutions. Every problem includes deeply embedded creativity, problem-solving, and collaborative learning.

The fully-customizable LifePractice PBL recipe cards are packaged in content sets, but we encourage you to integrate as many of the content ingredients you can for a complete meal of PBL. Teachers are able to ramp up or scale back the complexity of each card to create the unit that feeds the students at their tables. Each set includes unit cards that give the beginning or advanced PBL teacher a variety of topics to capture and engage kids’ minds and hearts.

Use these cards year after year for a different PBL experience each time!

Many times, music and visual arts teachers have been put into a backseat, add-on role inside the PBL classroom, but NO MORE! This set of Arts-anchored PBL cards put design, creation, and performance squarely at the forefront of learning. These Arts units are perfectly tuned for the elementary, middle school, or high school teacher looking to grab kids’ hearts and brains. With each card serving as a lesson unit, arts-focused teachers can integrate additional content areas into their PBL’s to create depth to catch those kids who might think that visual arts or music is not for them, while helping those who have deeper talents see broader connections of art and the rest of the world. Each PBL card/unit can be customized to fit most any classroom, elementary to high school, individual, small-group, or whole-class. With a slight shift here or there, these LifePractice PBL recipe cards can also be used year after year, creating a dynamic learning environment that is truly responsive to students’ and teachers’ needs alike. Help your kids see the exciting ties between school and the bigger, connected world.
