LESSON STEPSDay One3 Prepare the classroom for dance.Moving Desks/Set-up1. Introduce dancing the area and perimeter of a rectangle. Analyze photographs or videoof dancers using free and bound movement. Dancing Mathematicians, what is the perimeter of a rectangle? (distance around a shape) Howdo you find the measurement of the perimeter? (e.g. count units on the sides, P 2L 2W) What is the area of a rectangle? (measure of the size of the surface inside a two-dimensionalspace of a region) How do you find the measurement of the area? (e.g. count the tiles that fillthe polygon, A LW) Let’s do a hand dance. Draw the perimeter of a rectangle in the air with your hand. Now, showthe area of the rectangle by filling it with movement.3 You may use these photos: Pacific Northwest Ballet: Mara Vinson in Nacho Duato’s Rassemblementand Carla Korbes in Twyla Tharp’s Opus 111. You could also choose to find your own photos or videosthat represent a variety of styles and cultures. If you would like to use video examples of bound andfree movement, preview the video clips below. You could show them before or after thedance explorations.The Narrowing - AXIS Dance Company (2011): duet featuring one dancer who uses a wheelchairand one who doesn’thttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v 8Fe2XIB0Dh0Seattle Art Museum: Nick Cave, In the Classroomhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v OcvfW1HNnrs&feature player embeddedRefraction excerpt, Alonzo King LINES Ballethttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v ooUXXE7PQDU Dancing Mathematicians, today we are going to dance the area and perimeter of rectangles.ARTS IMPACT DANCE AND MATH INFUSION – Third Grade Lesson Three: Choreographing the Area and Perimeter6

We’ll use bound or tight movements to dance the perimeter. Look at the tight shape made bythe dancer in this photograph.We’ll use free or loose movement to dance the area. Look at the free shape made by thedancer in this photograph.2. Remind students about agreements for appropriate dance behavior. Remind me, how can you be creative and safe at the same time?Movement Safety3. Lead students in Math BrainDance warm-up. (BrainDance originally developed byAnne Green Gilbert, www.creativedance.org, reference: Brain-Compatible DanceEducation, video: BrainDance, Variations for Infants through Seniors.)Music: “Math BrainDance (Third Grade)” #4, Math Dances by Debbie Gilbert BrainDance byArtist MentorThe BrainDance is designed to warm up your body and make your brainwork better at the same time. Notice when we use area and perimeter inthe BrainDance.Breath Dancing Mathematicians, breathe gently.BrainDance byStudentsTactile Tap the top of your head five times. Tap your shoulders five times. Tap your stomachs fivetimes. Tap your knees five times. Tap your feet five times. That was five sets of five.

Cover the area of the rectangle with big movements with your arms.Lower Half Freeze the upper half of your body. Draw the perimeter of a small rectangle on the floor withyour toes. Cover the area of the rectangle with small movements with your feet.Body-Half Right Freeze the left side of your body. Dance with the whole right side of your body. Dance with onehalf of your right side. Dance with one fourth of your right side. Dance with one eighth of yourright side.ARTS IMPACT DANCE AND MATH INFUSION – Third Grade Lesson Three: Choreographing the Area and Perimeter7

Body-Half Left Freeze the right side of your body. Dance with the whole left side of your body. Dance with onehalf of your left side. Dance with one fourth of your left side. Dance with one eighth of yourleft side.Eye-Tracking Focus on your right thumb. Watch it as you draw the perimeter of a polygon in the air. Watchyour left thumb as you draw the perimeter of a polygon in the air.Cross-Lateral Reach across your body up high, up high, down low, down low. We’ll count to eight: 1, 2, 3 8. Let’s cut that in half: 1, 2, 3, 4. Let’s cut that in half again: 1, 2.Vestibular Turn, then freeze in a rectangle shape. Turn, then freeze in a square shape. Turn, then freezein a rhombus shape. Turn, then freeze in a different quadrilateral shape.Breath Breathe gently, Dancing Mathematicians.4. Introduce and lead exploration of free energy and bound energy movement.Use a drum or other instrument for accompaniment. Dancers can move with free or loose movement. (Demonstrate.) Look for the empty spaces around you so you don’t touch anyone. Move freely with your arm.Move freely with your backbone. Move freely with your whole body in one spot. Dancers can move with bound or tight movement. When you do bound movement, all yourmuscles are really tight. (Demonstrate.) Do bound movement with your shoulders. Do bound movement with your legs. Do boundmovement with your whole body as your travel around the room.Prompting for Creativityþ Criteria-based process assessment: Moves with bound and free energy.5. Demonstrate calculating and dancing the perimeter and area of a rectangle witha partner.Music: “Totem Pole” #13, Music for Creative Dance, Volume IV, by Eric Chappelle3 Use the board, document camera, or chart paper to show filling out thedemonstration worksheet. I’ll need an assistant to be my partner. First, we’ll look at our rectangle and find our perimeter.How should we do that? Next, we’ll find the area of our rectangle. How should we do that? We will be choreographers, or inventors of dances, and create an area and perimeter dance.ARTS IMPACT DANCE AND MATH INFUSION – Third Grade Lesson Three: Choreographing the Area and Perimeter8

I will dance the perimeter. My partner, who will be dancing the area, will freeze in a low shapein the middle of the rectangle. To do my perimeter dance, I need to know the perimetermeasurement of my rectangle. We discovered that was 14 units. I’ll dance around the edge ofmy rectangle with 14 bound, or tight movements (2 on the short sides and 5 on the long sides).I’ll count to 14 as I move. Then, I’ll freeze.My partner will dance the area. To do that, she needs to know the area measurement of myrectangle. We discovered that was 10 square units. She will cover or fill the space inside therectangle with 10 free or loose movements. She’ll count to 10 as she moves. Then, she’ll freeze. 6. Support students as they calculate and dance the perimeter and area of arectangle with a partner. Distribute worksheet and pencils to each duo.Music: “Totem Pole” #13, Music for Creative Dance, Volume IV, by Eric ChappelleArea andPerimeter Dance3 Copy enough student worksheets from the lessons so that each duo has one. Thereare four different rectangles. The worksheets all have rectangles with an area of 12. The perimetersare different (6L and 2W, 2L and 6W, 3L and 4W, 4W and 3L). Don’t use the demonstration worksheetsince the area for that is different.3 Optional: Put tape or spots on the floor to define the rectangles. First, calculate the perimeter and area of your rectangle and write them on your worksheet.How will you figure out what the area is? How will you figure out what the perimeter is? One of you will dance the perimeter by dancing with tight or bound energy around the edge ofyour rectangle. Dance the same number of counts as the measurement of the perimeter,counting softly to yourself as you move. End by freezing in a low shape. The other dancer willbe frozen during the perimeter dance in a low shape in the middle of the rectangle. Next, the other dancer dances the area by filling or covering the space with free or loosemovements. Dance the same number of counts as the measurement of the area, countingsoftly as you move. End by freezing in a shape. Practice your dance. Ask yourselves, do the number of counts you are dancing match themeasurement of your perimeter and area? Are they the same or different from each other?Why?þ Criteria-based teacher checklist, self-assessment: Records the number of square units in the insidesurface of a rectangle. Records the number of units in the distance around a rectangle. Performs boundmovement for the total number of counts matching the measurement of the distance around arectangle, or performs free movements for the total number of counts matching the measurement ofthe surface inside the boundary of the rectangle.7. Lead reflection. Dancing Mathematicians, look at your worksheets. Let’s compare our rectangles. What were theperimeters of your rectangles? What were the areas? What did you notice? Why do you thinkthat is true?þ Criteria-based reflection: Analyzes how rectangles with different perimeters can have the same area.ARTS IMPACT DANCE AND MATH INFUSION – Third Grade Lesson Three: Choreographing the Area and Perimeter9

Day Two1. Review measuring area and perimeter. Dancing Mathematicians, remind me what is the area of a rectangle? How do we measure it? What is the perimeter of a rectangle? How do we measure it?Today, we’ll refine and rehearse our area and perimeter dances and perform them foreach other. 2. Remind students about agreements for appropriate dance behavior.Remind me, how can you be creative and safe at the same time? 3. Lead students in Math BrainDance from Day One.The BrainDance is designed to warm up your body and make your brain work better at thesame time. Notice when we use area and perimeter in the BrainDance. 4. Support students as they refine and rehearse their area and perimeter dances.Music: “Totem Pole” #13, Music for Creative Dance, Volume IV, by Eric Chappelle3 To help the students remember their dances, pass out their worksheets from the previous lesson.Consider how the students will have to increase or decrease the scale of their movements dependingon the amount of space you have available. Let’s review what happens in our dances and then you can practice with your partner. One of you dances the perimeter by dancing with tight or bound energy around the edge ofyour rectangle. Dance the same number of counts as the measurement of the perimeter,counting softly to yourself as you move. End by freezing in a low shape. The other dancerfreezes during the perimeter dance in a low shape in the middle of the rectangle. Next, the other dancer dances the area by filling or covering the space with free or loosemovements. Dance the same number of counts as the measurement of the area, countingsoftly as you move. End by freezing in a shape. Mathematicians check their work to make sure it is the best it can be. Choreographers refinetheir work for the same reason. If you are doing bound energy, how can you make it tighter? If you are doing free energy, howcan you make it looser? Perimeter dancers, make sure you are making 90 degree angles at the corners of yourrectangle. Area dancers, make sure you are filling the whole area with movement. When you practice your dance, think about how you can use your whole body, not just yourfeet or your arms, to show either bound or free movement.ARTS IMPACT DANCE AND MATH INFUSION – Third Grade Lesson Three: Choreographing the Area and Perimeter10

ARTS IMPACT FAMILY LETTERDANCE AND MATH LESSON: Choreographing the Area and PerimeterDear Family:Today your child participated in an Arts and Math lesson. We talked about how both mathematiciansand dancers can measure and use area and perimeter. We reviewed how to measure area (the inside surface) and perimeter (the outside edge)of rectangles. We did the Math BrainDance to warm up our brains and bodies. We explored bound or tight movement and free or loose movement. We calculated the area and perimeter of a rectangle. We created a dance with a partner in which we danced the perimeter with bound movement andthe area with free movement. We performed the dances and talked about how we knew when a dancer was dancing the areaand when a dancer was dancing the perimeter.At home, you could ask your child to help you calculate the area and perimeter of a book or thetelevision. Ask your child to show you how to use movement to show area and perimeter.Enduring UnderstandingMovement around the edges of a rectangle and filling the insideof the rectangle can show perimeter and area.ARTS IMPACT DANCE AND MATH INFUSION – Third Grade Lesson Three: Choreographing the Area and Perimeter19
