K-6 ARTS LESSON PLANS

Dance Lessons

This collection of online arts lesson plans began in 1997. Over the course of time the CA arts standards have been updated so you will find the alignment to standards in these lessons varies depending on when they were written.


Dr. Guenter retired in 2019 so no new lessons are being added to this collection.
