Using this website, students can observe photographs of the Grand Canyon today and compare them with photographs of fossils of sea life found in the Grand Canyon. Students are asked to draw conclusions based on their observations of the photographs and a short article with an explanation is provided.
In this warmup activity, one student is the conductor, and the other students are the choir. The choir copies the sounds and moves the conductor makes. The conductor can control how loud or quiet the choir is and combine different sounds to create music.
Students gain an understanding of the reasons for increased heat risks in urban desert environments, differentiate among heat-related health issues (heat stroke, heat exhaustion), and follow the correct emergency response to scenarios of heat-related health issues.
In this activity, students act out scenarios in which a character must experience anxiety at school. The scenes are performed, then rehearsed again. The second time, the students change the emotion from anxiety to worry. The scenes are performed again, and the students identify moments they noticed emotions shown through bodies, voices, and words.
In this activity, the director helps the students create frozen images ("tableaux") inspired by a fairy tale. Once all of the students know the tableaux, the director then controls how the scene of frozen images plays out by calling out buttons that can be found on a remote control such as "reverse" and "fast forward." The students then act accordingly.
