We are working with a group of kids in 3rd and 4th grade from Green Central School, Bancroft and Anderson (I think). We are working on being “community and cultural connecters” and incorporating those ideas into a piece of theatre that the kids will create. For the last two weeks we have been working on looking for things in our neighborhood that reflect our community and representing them through drawing and writing. We have exploring what it means to be a community, and also what kinds of people make up a community. We will continue to investigate those questions after 4th of July break, as we start to delve more deeply into making a theatre piece. The students will be designing, building, writing, and performing in a piece of their own creation.
