Our current 4th-6th grade Project Based Learning unit, Uncapping the Imagination, is about writing and producing a play. First, we wrote a story using historical figures. We chose historical figures from various time periods so it makes the play funny! It’s fun to see how the characters from different historical eras interact with one another. After coming up with the story, we wrote a script. Because we are creating a theatrical production, we are also making sets and costumes and learning how to apply stage makeup. We’ve spent a lot of time practicing our script and how to stage ourselves so the play looks good. We are excited to perform for showcase next week!
