Get in the Act! boosts learning for Zephyr Cove students
ZEPHYR COVE, Nev. – Get in the Act’s Science Fusion Theater combined theater techniques with guided-inquiry to engage more than 125 Zephyr Cove Elementary students in science concepts such as physics, Earth science, air, and weather properties during the month of April. Each lesson investigated an intriguing science question by allowing students to model the concept through active dramatizations called Act-It-Outs. These Act-It-Outs use a familiar genre and characters to provide a framework so that students are drawn into the lesson through vocal, kinesthetic, and cognitive participation.
This Science Fusion Theater residency was made possible with support from Zephyr Cove Elementary School, their Parent-Teacher Organization, The Leonette Foundation, Tahoe-Douglas Rotary Club and US Bank.
Get in the Act sincerely thanks all for their support.
