Hendrix Consulting Education (HCE) aims to teach to the 3 learning styles: visual (learns through seeing), auditory (learns through listening), and tactile/kinesthetic (learns through moving, doing and touching). We achieve teaching to the 3 learning- styles through providing educational experiences based in the Integrated Creative Arts, including: creative movement, creative drama, music, visual art, and creative writing. We used the internet, books and information learned in classes so all activities and information you can find if you search for it. The difference is how we organized the information to be used with students.Each student is provided the opportunity to explore weekly themes through seeing, listening, moving, doing and touching.

In addition, we mesh one other educational approach. It is called play-based learning. HCE prides itself on seeking out the best of teaching practices and combining them with the integrated arts approach to education.

This week’s theme is filled with fun and educational activities that help children explore the theme “The Moon”!

“The Moon” Lesson Details: Students will explore the phases of the moon and begin to understand that the moon does not change shape but the amount of the moon we can see changes, including: new moon, waxing crescent, first quarter, waxing gibbous, full moon, waning gibbous, last quarter and waning crescent. Students will explore the concept of gravity and how the moon has less gravity than the earth making it possible to jump higher and leap farther. Students will explore the pathway of the moon using the words: revolve and rotate.
