Our Livestream Special offers classrooms a convenient, online-accessible option for experiencing educational theatre.
This 35-minute show presents a virtual lesson in water conservation for grades K-6. Through an interactive web platform, a live host will introduce entertaining sketches featuring a variety of characters in professionally filmed scenes from our live theatrical productions – and guide classrooms to participate in a discussion on water’s importance and the hazards of pollution.
Through puppetry and sing-along for grades K-2 and in-depth discussion questions for grades 3-6, students are prompted to consider how we can use water wisely after watching each sketch:
Scene 1: Two members of the Aqua League, Captain Doorknob and his 27th mate Swabby, are trying to figure out their lunch plans. Little do they know, a villain lurks nearby!
Scene 2: Captain Doorknob and Delbert Clogg face water waster from the deep, Dame Judy Drenched! Can they persuade her to stop polluting water?
Scene 3: Captain Doorknob investigates Tory Misu’s Dockside Café, where he has a final showdown with Dame Judy Drenched.
Students and teachers will also have access to a Q&A with the host and an exclusive e-learning package that includes The Aqua League Power Play classroom game, e-books and graphic novels, quizzes and lesson plans for the classroom that reinforce concepts from the show.
The e-learning package is reinforced by printed materials including student playbooks with games and activities to further students’ learning as well as full-color graphic novels that tell a dynamic story about water conservation. This year, participating schools also have access to a digital parent-connect event, held after school so parents can take part in an educational and entertaining livestream special along with their kids. Finally, schools will have access to The Aqua League Power Play classroom game, an escape room-style activity that encourages students to collaborate as they solve clues and puzzles in a one-of-a-kind hands-on lesson.
