It was beautiful to be outdoors, by the lakeside, in the early morning. Clare used the waves, the sun, the wind, and the dancers and musicians--glorious!
Thanks so much for the pictures and story of the project. The girls ars experiencing so much in thhis project, as are the viewers like me. I won't be home on the 30th, but i willl be so happy to read about the performance amd see photos. Thanks for all you do, Clare - both for the girls and for your admiring supporters.
That you challenge children to integrate two ways of learning enlarges their view of both science and dance as well as their experience of learning outside the box. Why not compare apples with oranges and come up with something altogether new? Or to come up with something altogether old and essential: our moral responsibility to our world, to the Great Lakes. Your lucky students are unlikely to forget this lesson Clare; you are a great teacher!
The project looks really wonderful. I have been involved for many years with educational endeavors that integrate the arts with the arts and with other disciplines. The students involved in this learning experience will never forget it because it engages them is using many different parts of their brain and I believe that whenever movement is part of the process the learning becomes embedded more deeply in the memory.
