Description:

Lesson Plan - The Sculpture Project: Passage of Wind and Water - Thinking about Natural Forces (6-12) This lesson can be accessed HERE or by clicking the PDF, lower left.

About the Lesson:
Students use informational text and unbiased information to think about natural forces in new ways; an excerpt of a Lakota origin story engages students in considering the value of origin stories from all cultures. Included are a graphic organizer about natural forces and questions requiring personal observations and literary analysis.

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.
