The Studio School
LEVER THUMB PUPPETS PD
The Studio School is a unique magnet elementary school in Colorado's Adams 12 Five Star district. Their commitment to public arts-integration across disciplines was perfect fit for STEAM discovery. At our summer PD workshop, teachers investigated kinetic puppetry as a way to transform engineering and language literacy. Teachers engaged with our Lever Thumb Puppets project, adapting and extending it to integrate and galvanize other content areas - ecology and ecosystems, storytelling, dramatic arts, etc. We had a ball with such a dedicated and creative crew of educators who taught us as much as shared with them. Our workshop was made possible by Think 360 Arts for Learning.
