The MET Lesson Plans  is a group of 27 cross-curricular (art, language arts, science & technology, social studies) lessons. Each lesson lists Arts and Common Core Standards.

Ancient Animals at Work  Students (K-8) learn about trade in ancient Middle East, identify ways an artist depicted a camel's role, and create a clay sculpture of an animal at work in their own community.

Point of View in Print and Paint This lesson focuses on John Brown. Students (6-8) identify how an artist conveys viewpoint and support interpretations of documents with evidence from texts.

Aeneas, Art, and Storytelling Students (6-12) listen to a teacher reading of the Trojan women burning their ships and sketch what they imagine as they listen. Afterward, they share their drawings and explain their interpretations. The lesson includes an enlargeable image of Claude Lorrain’s The Trojan Women Setting Fire to Their Fleet, questions for viewing, and citation for Emily Frankel’s Aeneas: Virgil's Epic Retold for Younger Readers.

Beyond the Figure Using Charles Demuth’s painting “I Saw the Figure 5 in Gold” based on the poem “The Great Figure” by William Carlos Williams, students (6-12) consider how an artist conveys personality in nonfigurative art and the relationship between the visual and verbal. They then choose a piece of writing to create a nonfigurative art.
