December IB Assembly

Posted on 12/20/2018
Westward ExpansionIn November, students from Ms. Percacciolo, Mr. Reese, and Ms. Hulscher’s 5th grade classes performed the musical, Westward Expansion as part of their student led IB assembly. The musical connected to prior learning of migration, colonization, and exploration from 5th grades first unit of inquiry this year. Mrs. Corvin has been preparing with students since September and it showed in their confident delivery. All students participated in performing, and some even volunteered their recess to design the set and build props. This is the first of three performances 5th grade will showcase this year. Students will be exploring elements of drama; how to create and respond to drama; and the many performance skills needed to perform successfully. Our goal is not only to expose students to drama and give them the opportunity to engage in the art of drama, but to provide opportunity to develop skills which will help in many aspects of life from presenting to being courageous enough to try something new. Excellent job 5th grade!
