For our unit on How We Express Ourselves, each child chose a method of storytelling they wanted to explore. Here is the finished product of a group of children who inquired into DANCE as a medium for storytelling. They worked together to create a story and then collaborated to think of body movements that they thought would best tell their story.
This story is about an evil witch named Zoo who plots with the Evil Dancing Tree to capture Princess Shine. The Princess is saved by a mermaid with a magical necklace. The powers of the magical necklace make Witch Zoo and the Evil Dancing Tree fall asleep, when they awoke they were no longer evil!
