Following the Minnesota Academic Standards in the Arts, second graders participating in this experience will gain basic skills in movement in rhythmic and musical contexts, in creating a sequence of movement with a beginning, middle and end to communicate a story, and in using movement, sound, language, voice, costumes, and props to create images, express ideas, and communicate a character and a story. Audiences will gain knowledge and appreciation for theater through attending this play.Students will be asked to reflect on their experience through a questionnaire. The audience knowledge and appreciation for theater and the performance will be measured based on their responses to questions asked before and after the play.
