Description:

Lesson Plan - The Sculpture Project: Passage of Wind and Water - We Learn From Animals (K-2) This lesson can be accessed HERE or by clicking the PDF, lower left.

About the Lesson:
With this lesson, students think about what animals can teach us about personal responsibility. The Sculpture Project invites us to think about the connection between people and nature. In this lesson students read an historical text by Luther Standing Bear and think about their behavioral connections to animals.

This lesson was not created by the SDPB, and therefore should be attributed to the person who created it. Passage to Schools lessons have been developed in coordination with Rapid City High School teacher and Sculpture Project Advisory Committee member, Gabrielle Seeley. (More)

About the Project:
The Sculpture Project: Passage of Wind and Water (Video by Randall Iverson about the project) is a large-scale public art project at Main Street Square in the heart of downtown Rapid City. Stone sculptor Masayuki Nagase is carving the 21-piece granite sculpture on-site over five years, beginning in 2013.

Passage to Schools is a family of K-12 lesson plans that uses this work of public art to spark learning about literature, history, science and Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota culture. The downloadable lessons are dual-aligned to Common Core and Oceti Sakowin standards. Rapid City High School art and language teacher Gabrielle Seeley developed Passage to Schools.

To arrange a school visit to The Sculpture Project: Passage of Wind and Water at Main Street Square, or for more information about the curricula, contact Destination Rapid City’s Community Arts Coordinator Anna Huntington at anna@artsrapidcity.com

Curriculum is made possible in part from a grant from the South Dakota Arts Council. SDAC support is provided with funds from the State of South Dakota, through the Department of Tourism, and the National Endowment for the Arts. The Rapid City Public School Foundation and Black Hills Community Bank also support the curriculum project.
