Inspired by amazing circus performers, kindergarten students worked to create their own “little circus.” Through research, visiting professional circus artists, and facilitated discussion, students learned acrobatics, juggling, hula hooping, clowning, and balancing acts.
Students also investigated important issues in the circus such as whether animals should be included in acts or not. Kindergartners created this book and performed “The ABC’s of Circus” for their community celebration of learning.
How This Project Can Be Useful:
- A compelling topic for students
- Final product illustrates the impact of the visiting experts and research
- A beautiful example of high-quality individual student contribution to a collective class product
- Vibrant and exciting use of multi media art
