Backyard Explorations

Nature - Art - Music

The Canton Symphony Orchestra, Canton Museum of Art and the Wilderness Center have come together to produce a collaborative online project that will educate students about nature through visual art and music. We hope this online portal will allow educators and families to engage with nature, art, and music in their own backyard. This program is geared to second-grade Science, Music, and Visual Arts ODE Standards and can be easily adapted for both the classroom and home school families.

The Backyard Explorations online learning program is split into two main educational topics: Migration and Camouflage. Within these areas, three pieces of art have been chosen to visually represent learning goals. For each piece of art, a lesson has been created to focus on each learning area: nature, visual art, and music.
