As long as humans have had the ability to communicate, they have been telling stories.  During this interactive week, kids will create a giant paper stuffed animal as they learn about animals across the world.  Then, they will use their creation as inspiration to write a folktale, while reading several folktales from history.  They will learn about story elements and character development as they craft their tale.  Finally, they will then learn how to use movement and song to tell their story.  The week will culminate in a dance performance of their folktale–the kids will have great fun experimenting with costume design and stage makeup to enhance their performance.
