NASA StarChild: A Song for All Seasons
Developed by two ambitious middle grade teachers with the help of the astrophysics center of NASA, A Song For All Seasons is an activity which pairs the work of Italian composer, Antonio Vivaldi with a lesson on the earth's relationship to the sun. Like many artists throughout history, Vivaldi was inspired by the natural world surrounding him and wrote a group of four violin concerti, each giving musical expression to one season. In this interactive activity, students listen to Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, examine the chart provided on the earth’s orbit, and try their hand at deciding which season Vivaldi was trying to portray. Interactive, inspiring, integrative!
