Hopefully you can work together to incorporate art with their curriculums, Some ideas I thought of when i read this quick (keeping what my 5th grade is learning in mind)----

-art history- teach children about artists during the era they are learning in SS, show portraits of historical figures and analyze them, show artwork that would give them deeper understanding of the era. this is endless.
-for ELA for example my 5th grade is doing unit on animals- have kids draw different animals using pastel or water color
-reading- Book about underground railroad- look at african american art, quilts that were used as symbols to show slaves safe houses to stay in, make their own symbolic quilt pattern.
- for science, use molding clay to sculpt plant/animal cells etc, trace bodies on big paper and color in parts and label, create their own animal species to survive in a certain environment, make 3-d models of whatever they are learning using any type of miscellaneous objects you can find in your house.

Thats what i would do. And i would ask the teachers for a tentative schedule of what theyll be doing each week.
