Yeshivat He’Atid Third Graders Combine History and Arts

In their social studies class, third grade students researched the causes of the American Revolution and did a phenomenal job showcasing what they learned. They sequenced the events using a timeline on the Smartboard. Each group took a turn performing a tableau, a group of models representing a scene from history; students stood still as statues as the audience walked through the scene to view their expressions and body language. Each student had the opportunity to unfreeze and explain his/her character. Following the performances, the class returned to the timeline to record the cause and effect of each event. This enabled the students to visualize how each event transpired and served as a catalyst for the American Revolution.
