Once students have read the story, they will use creative dramatics to stage it, including the characters and other elements in the illustrations. In doing so, the students will find a new understanding of the individuals and their motivations, while using team work and imagination while retelling the story. During the second visit the Teaching Artists will give the students an opportunity to walk a real tight wire, helping to better understand what the characters were feeling and doing. The students are then challenged to create a writing project in their classroom to demonstrate their understanding of the story and to express their personal feelings towards the story and the experience of walking a tight wire.
