Before Watching

In their work for this unit, students address several key concepts:

  • the interaction of fantasy and reality;
  • the idea that stories have a beginning, middle, and end;
  • the relationship of action words and topic sentences to movement; and
  • science and math principles seen in patterns and textures.

As you watch this program, consider:

  • how these concepts could be applied to working with other works of art; and
  • how the children used these concepts in their multi-arts performance.

This unit also reflects several important goals for the students, such as:

  • analysis and critical thinking;
  • mentoring of kindergarten students by fourth-grade students;
  • teamwork in creating and performing;
  • immersion in creating a work of art; and
  • understanding a work of art through the process of creation.

Identify ways that students demonstrated their mastery of these skills as they created and performed their original work of art.
