Ecosystem in a Box
Subjects: Drama, Science
This imaginative, immersive residency uses theater techniques to invite students into a personal exploration of organisms, ecosystems, and the vital role human impacts on natural resources play in the balance of nature. Working in small groups, students will use research skills, imagination, and oral speaking skills to present a short performance in which they embody the animals in the eco-system that they are studying. Then they’ll share their discoveries with their classmates. Classroom teachers are invited to suggest specific units to explore through this fun and memorable residency. Artist will provide simple costume elements.
