Theme for 2016-17: Environment and Sustainability
This 6-session After-School Theatre program for students in Grades 3 to 5 will:
- Explore drama/theatre games and activities (such as tableau, role playing, puppetry, group work and devising), building their performance, co-operation and communication skills.
- Create drama/theatre using their learned skills and articulate their own questions and ideas regarding the environment and sustainability.
- Develop and intensify understanding of group processes and learn to show respect for all ideas, individual perceptions and performances.
The objective of the theme is for students to make and deepen connections with various components of the natural environment through Theatre. Specific components of the environment to be addressed will include the following: nature, trees, elements, water, wildlife, animals and the students’ own awareness of their participation in sustaining the earth’s resources.
