The Arts

Atlas Learning Zone is designed to cater to students of all learning levels. While Learning Activities require guided instruction from an adult, Resources for Learning, Apply the Learning prompts, and Vocabulary lists can reinforce specific skills or facilitate independent exploration of a subject. Here are some useful tips to make the most out of Atlas Learning Zone.


Overall Curriculum Expectations

The Grade 5 Arts curriculum encourages learners to be creative every day.

In Grade 5 Dance, learners expand their movement vocabulary in response to various stimuli, select appropriate forms, and manipulate dance elements, including relationship, time, and energy to create choreography.

The Grade 5 Drama curriculum builds upon the drama forms and conventions, with learners gaining a better understanding and greater competence as they incorporate more movement/dance connections, storytelling, prepared improvisation and short scenes, day in the life, inner/outer circle, and corridor of voices.

Grade 5 Music students develop the ability to read music notation and apply their knowledge of music elements through performing (singing, moving, playing instruments), creating, and listening.

Grade 5 Visual Arts students apply the elements of design to communicate for various purposes and on multiple themes, with a focus on connecting to personal experiences in their world.

The Arts curriculum is structured into four strands:

  • Dance
  • Drama
  • Music
  • Visual Arts
