Thomas Edison: Inventor, Lecturer and Prankster
Thomas Alva Edison collaborates with your students as they help him recreate some of his most famous experiments. Along the way, he shares several secrets that they can use in their day-to-day lives, including the importance of hard work, the value of mistakes, the ability to turn liabilities into assets, and the necessity of enjoying one’s work.
The Lewis and Clark Expedition: A Celebration of Teamwork
A great American voyage of discovery comes to life in this thrilling interactive production. Students take on the roles of Lewis and Clark, their Native American guide Sacagawea, the Corps of Discovery and many others, as they explore the newly acquired Louisiana Purchase. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the close calls, chance reunions, ferocious animals and scenic majesty of Lewis and Clark’s extended adventure — and learn about history, science, character development and teamwork.
Benjamin Franklin: America’s First Citizen
America's favorite founding father demonstrates how self discipline, public service and a genuine love of life led to international fame and the gratitude of a nation.
A mash-up of Aesop, Uncle Remus and Looney Tunes result in forty-five minutes of hilarity your kids won't soon forget. Sure you think you know the old tales...But not the way WE tell them. Your students play all the animals as your audience supplies all the sound effects. And there's always two morals...the one you expect and one just this side of Fractured Fairy Tales. Students and faculty will enjoy rediscovering this new part of the Common Core Curriculum. As one PTA mom said recently, “I wish my husband were here when the wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing launched the ACME Sheep-Seeking Missile. He would have loved it!”
Myths, Fables, & Tall Tales
Elementary school teachers requested this program to fulfill their k-4 Common Core Curriculum topic: "MYTHS, FABLES & TALL TALES!" Myths were devised to explain natural phenomena. They were soon peopled with gods and goddesses with a habit of playing tricks on humans. (Be careful what you wish for King Midas!) Aesop invented a brand-new type of tale to instruct good behavior--FABLES. THE TORTOISE & THE HARE will have your students cheering for their favorite. And finally good ol' AMERICAN TALL TALES. Stories that grew with each telling! These stories grew so big, they became TALL...TALL TALES! We tell the story of Paul Bunyan! It's a lot of dress up and audience participation. Photo opportunities galore! And there's plenty of wry humor to entertain students and teachers alike
