Theatre of Will
45-Min Virtual Learning Experiences for:
Elementary Schools & At Home Students
Sponsored by: Los Angeles Department of Water & Power
Take a look at a preview of our new virtual educational presentation for students to see and participate in at home. The learning experience complements Elementary School NGSS and ELA standards. And the animation makes it fun for students in Grades 3,4, and 5 to watch and learn from!
Water Guardians is a Zoom-led Virtual Learning Experience for at home students. It incorporates material from our live assemblies, such as our music and pantomime, and includes some of our student participation elements.
Presentations are hosted by a live Theatre of Will Teaching Artist who speaks directly to the at-home students, and features animated characters who demonstrate water saving techniques.
The animated characters take at-home students on an entertaining and educational journey where they learn the importance of water and good water conservation methods. The 45-min learning experience also compliments the NGSS and ELA class standards for grades 3-5.
A comprehensive Teacher's Handbook will be provided and a professional development session will take place in advance of the presentation where materials are explained to teachers.
