Spending Time in Fairy Tale Land

The Land of Fairy Tales has moved into Room 222. As we study these classic stories, we have set a goal to become experts in this genre. Our room has immersed itself into truly understanding the story and the struggles of our characters. 

To do this, we have a S.T.E.A.M focus for our unit. S.T.E.A.M stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math.

For our Fairy Tale Fair, each student has chosen the project and fairy tale study of his/her choice. Through this process, Room 222 decided on 5 different Fairy Tales and Focuses. 

Some of our Room 222 classmates have chosen to study the art of theater by performing two classics, Jack and the Beanstalk and Cinderella. 

A few have chosen the art of design through the study of The Emperor's New Clothes. Our clothing makers are experimenting with weaving. 

The Culinary Arts will also be represented at our Fair through the study of The Little Red Hen. Two of our talented students are studying and experimenting with bread baking.

Last but not least, an ambitious group of engineers has chosen to try and trick the Big Bad Wolf by building a house that he (my blowdryer) cannot blow down. 

At our Fairy Tale Fair, you will not only be able to see two amazing performances, you will also be able to learn about the other projects from our experts and experiment with these techniques yourself!

Room 222 can't wait to see you at our Fairy Tale Fair. 
Check out this example of the amazing learning the student have been doing:
