I am planning a Sustainability & Recycling Student Service Learning unit called Mini Golf Madness! "Course of Causes" My art students will explore how artists can make public art utilizing recycling to contribute to a sustainable community. They will create an 18 hole mini golf course with the public sculptures (out of recycled materials) being the obstacles on the course. The course will be displayed in the school gym and open in the Spring to students, their family, friends and community members to play! Each hole will have a themed cause to raise awareness or money for of the students’ choosing. Along side each hole will be an illustrated explanation of the process (language arts) Calculation of angle, slope, and trajectory to determine Par (math) and of course, the benefits of recycling (science.) Project includes Indiana Art Standards (8.12.3, 8.9.2, 8.13.2) Language Arts / literacy (6-8.RT.4) Math (8.3.5, 8.3.6, 8.4.1, 8.4.2) & Science (8.2.7). Putters will be borrowed from a local mini golf course which will promote school and community relations. I also plan to write an article about this cross curricular activity & submit it to several educational publications.
