Creating Performances About Our Learning

Last week we read some articles about daily life in various parts of China. We were divided into groups and each group had a different article. After we read our articles we discussed them with our group and then began to make a plan on how to teach the rest of the crew what we learned by acting out the activities we read about without talking. On performance day, we went out to the amphitheater and each group took a turn on the stage acting out the things they learned in their article. When they we done, the audience guessed what each group acted out. We learned a lot while planning and performing: close reading, reading pictures, collaborating with a group, creating a performance and interesting facts about daily life for families in China.
