Every year, in the spring, first grade students present a play. The play is a culminating project for the young students as they are called to apply and incorporate all that they have learned throughout the year. The students actually write and perform two plays. They use their fundamental skills in reading and writing to work collaboratively and creatively on the scripts as well as choose their props and costumes. They even opened their performance with a song that was written for the plays in their music class.
The first play was about the U.S. President whose plane has to make an emergency landing in Brazil while on route to South Africa. The second play featured explorers who steal a beautiful crystal from a museum only to have it stolen from them as well.
Great job, first graders and Ms. Collins!
