We missed Tech Center yesterday because of Back-to-School Breakfast, but Mr. Seagren was kind enough to give us a chance to make it up today. After reviewing all the important stuff about the Internet and searching, the students did an Internet treasure hunt. They had a lot of fun with this, as you can see!
Almost right after this, we went to the auditorium for theater class with Mr. Pratt. He is working with the students not only on their acting skills, but also with their ability to provide each other with positive and constructive feedback. Here two students are getting ready to positively critique their peers after the pantomime warm-up.
The big lesson for the day was learning to create “machines,” a classic theater game. This group was assigned to create a machine based on the Cinderella story.
