As the stories are being told, participants will get to play different characters as they act out mini scenes from the tale. They'll learn interesting facts about the country, geography or history behind the story and they'll spend a few minutes discussing the important lessons they learned. This class will have the kids moving and talking as they act out scenes and eagerly wait to find out how the story ends.
Why Take This Class?
Learning about culture can either help children connect with their roots and appreciate their own history more, or it can help them better appreciate diversity so that they can respectfully interact and engage with people from different backgrounds.
Using folktales is a fun way for kids to learn about other cultures because who doesn’t love a good story? The stories in this class are captivating and entertaining, and are most likely like nothing the kids have ever heard before, which makes the session all that more enchanting.
