How The Northern Lights Came to Be…

The primary students are, as you know, writing an original play.  They unanimously decided it should be set in the Arctic and that we would create together a story about how the Northern Lights came to be.  After we played some music and did a tableau where they all became characters in the freezing Arctic, they all wrote individual setting poems.  From all of their work, we created the opening scene of our play.  Thanks to Marvin, Nyomi, Simar, David and Eshaan for being major contributors this week.  Here it is:

Narrator:  Imagine:  The snowy, slippery Arctic.

Cracking ice, splashy water, a wavy ocean, teeth chattering.

You can see ferocious animals hunting and other animals dancing in the water while icebergs break around them.

You can smell the cold.

You can taste the snowflakes melting on your tongue.

You can hear the cold wind speaking to you and the whales calling from beneath the ice.

You can touch a friendly penguin.

Cracking ice, splashy water, a wavy ocean, teeth chattering.

The snowy, slippery Arctic….that is where our tale begins.
