Whiteboard/Blackboard, Marker/Chalk
There should be enough space for the students to walk around and perform scenes, ie. a classroom with the desks pushed back.
I can think creatively in order to create dynamic characters. I can work with a group to synthesize several new and imagined environments. I can apply my understanding of the principals of improvisational theater to classroom participation and to helping make my classroom a positive environment.
Our program is designed to foster teamwork within the classroom. The workshop consists of activities in which students work together to build scenes and stories. The workshop begins with a brief discussion of the principles of improv, then the instructor leads warm up activities. After the warm up activities, the instructor leads the students through a series of exercises demonstrating the principle of interconnectedness in both biology and theater. The workshop will end with another brief discussion about the material covered. Our grade 6 improv science program focuses on how features of an environment affect each other and how group interactions can affect individuals and vice versa.
Caregivers are invited to participate, give suggestions as audience members, or just observe. As many caregivers as want to participate are welcome to!
