I can identify the different phases of the water cycle. I can identify the different forms water can take (solid, liquid, gas). I can engage with interactive music technology. I can sing or dance along with teaching artist when prompted. I can articulate the differences between evaporation, condensation, transpiration, and precipitation.
Come on an extraordinary, hands-on journey through the water cycle with Wally And The Water Cycle. An original musical about a drop of water, Wally, who learns to overcome his fear of going through the changing states of the water cycle in a very humorous way. Students will laugh and learn about the different phases of the water cycle through stories, songs, comedy, interactive visual projections and audience participation. All of the activities and techniques in the performance are based on research from the Center for Autism and Early Childhood Mental Health at Montclair State University and from the schools of thought from New York University and Columbia University.
"... I truly appreciate your work and admire the way you interact with the kids. The amount of effort you put into learning the topic and making it relevant to what we were doing in class was clearly evident and impressive ... my students were truly engaged and learning. I can't wait to work with you again and I will be recommending you to everyone I can." -Stephen Gould, 5th Grade Teacher, Environmental Sciences Magnet School at Mary Hooker
Parents and caregivers can absolutely participate in the performance as characters in the show.
