“Science: The Musical!” (Grades 3-5)​

The Turtle Dance Musicians engage students, whether they love performing or are scared to get on stage, in timed challenges, games and activities that will help create original songs and comedy scenes based on the topics. At the end of the class the students perform for one another and retain the information they learned through reflection. We also record the songs and scenes for study-help later!
