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 ACTING as a medium for storytelling. They worked together to create a story and then collaborated to think of body movements, facial expressions, props and lines that they thought would best tell their story.
This is a story about Captain Parry, Pirate Jim and Harry the mouse who were out looking for treasure! All of a sudden, they came across a waterfall that washed them off their ship! The waterfall was pulling them in, they saw a rock and held onto it. It was lucky they held onto the rock because they saw that the treasure was under the waterfall!
