All the show props and toys necessary to conduct the workshop.
I need two banquet size tables to spread toys on. The students will stand around the tables to access the toys.
I need an open, prefer intimate space to conduct the show/workshop. Since "The Science/Dance Experience" is geared towards one classroom at a time smaller spaces are better than gyms. I also need 2 six foot tables and access to space one hour prior to the show/workshop as mentioned above.
I can understand the basic meaning of science and how it can be applied in different ways. I can comprehend that science can be found in magic tricks, in common toys that I play with and in my own body through guided movement. I can be responsible and self regulate my body and emotions when doing movement with other children.
The Science/Dance Experience is kinesthetic learning of science, dance and literacy for young children. This program is a great opportunity for students take responsibility and self regulate their actions in part two and three of my program. First, the children see a magic show that helps students understand the meaning of science. Second, I let the students play with a host of toys that I provide encouraging them to tell me the action words they see happening in the toy. Third, I will conduct a dance class using the action words given as the catalyst for movement. Kinesthetic learning at it's best. Teachers walk away with, perhaps, a new exercise to do in the classroom and a list of action words to enhance the classroom's literary skills. Minimum 1 show a day and maximum of 4. day.
It's always nice to have someone to help me load in when I arrive at the school. Also breaking down after the show and loading out is a lot easier with help.
