In Earth’s Journey the students act out the Winter Solstice and the subsequent under-standing of science theory inspires them to read more, write more, and explore, both individually and co-operatively, the science they have learned about in this program.
The mythical Native American story about a people 10,000 years ago creates enthusiasm for the underlying scientific content. The story also leads the students through a lesson in cultural diversity. They learn first hand how a different culture thinks and acts individually and socially about common problems and solutions.
Earth’s Journey is designed to meet a variety of state and national standards in all grade levels. Each student’s class attends a 45-minute Introductory Assembly, a 35-minute Workshop Session, and a 45-minute Interactive Theater Production.
