Kindergarten and 1st grade students at Foundation Prep have been learning a series in science of animals ‘two by two’. They are learning about the different body parts and life cycle of each animal.
During this arts integrated lesson, the class was looking at water snails. Students used pantomime and tableau to create snail characters. Using their science knowledge, they embodied the different qualities of snails and how they interact in different setting, particularly the ‘glass aquarium’.
Students are understanding how to tell stories with their bodies, facial expressions, and movement while deepening the science lesson.
