“花式表达” 我们自己 | 双语部一年级中国木偶剧院之旅
Theme: How We Express Ourselves
Central Idea: We express our feelings and ideas in many different ways.
Line of inquiry1-Experiences that affect our feelings.
Line of inquiry2-How people express their feelings.
Line of inquiry3-The creative arts are used as forms of expression.
The first-year students experienced different emotional expressions brought by different forms of music, experienced the wonderful movements played by the colorful modules, and drew the “winter” in their hearts with the brush and colored clay in their hands. What is it?”. Students experience many ways to express their emotions and ideas in different art forms.
After five weeks of in-depth study, we came to the Chinese Puppet Theater on November 10th. The purpose of this practice is for students to experience the unique form of artistic expression of puppet show and to experience the diversification of expression methods.
The staffs of the Puppet Theater prepared three plays for the students, namely “The Turtle Turns into Stone”, “Animal School” and “Three Little Pigs Build a New House”.
The little rabbit and little mouse in “Turtle into Stone” were so smart. Together, they figured out a way to rescue the little turtle caught by the hunter.
The performance of “Animal School” drew bursts of laughter from the kids. The pig, puppy and duck can’t count “1+1=?”, this worries their teacher giraffe.
The students also followed the three little pigs to fight against the big bad wolf. Which one is the strongest, the grass house, the wooden house or the brick house?
The three plays soon ended. When the lights in the theater turned on again, the students said “This puppet show is really interesting” and “The time is so fast, I haven’t watched enough.”
The students explored and laughed together with the protagonist in the puppet show. The students will experience more different forms of expression. This is a journey to explore self-emotions, and it is also the beginning of children’s courage to express themselves.
