Electricity | Online


One of our artists will lead your class as we explore electricity through movement and action. We’ll beam into your class using Google Meets and lead the session for you. We’ll have a brief meeting before the first workshop to go over workshop details and answer any questions you may have.

After you check out, you will be able to pick your starting date from our calendar.

Time:  2- 75 Minute Sessions

Electricity is really just organized lightning “​

Program Outline

We use drama and movement to kinaesthetically learn about science by using our bodies to model real science concepts.

Step 1: We will teach the students the concept that we are looking at by using diagrams and videos.

Step 2: Students will have a chance to explore the concept through movement and drama – we will be animating the concept and acting it out.

Step 3: As we move through each new concept in your chosen topic, we will repeat the process of learning and acting so that the students can use their bodies to learn.

Step 4: We will provide worksheets for each topic for your students to complete either during or after our workshop sessions.

What Teachers are Saying

It works because students better remember what they actually do. We can come closer to a more complete understanding of how things work by acting them out.

It enhances all student learning by providing a methodology for kinaesthetic learning.
