LaCrescent Middle School integrates theater and science

LaCrescent Middle School has worked with the Perpich Arts Integration Project over the past four years bringing artists into their classroom for 3 week residencies. Past projects included integrating video and math with a media artist as well as a poetry and history integrated with spoken word.  This year Taos Khazem, a theater teaching artist, worked with sixth graders in their science classroom as they were studying energy.
