The Zebra and the Lion Workshop
A WORKSHOP TO CREATE AN OWN ZOO IN YOUR CLASSROOM
BY KAYLEE GOOD (US)
“We have more to learn from animals than animals
have to learn from us” – Anthony D. Williams
The Zebra and The Lion workshops are all about getting everyone to step into the wonderful world of animals – moving, interacting like them and giving sounds. Let your pupils’ imagination shine as the classroom transforms into a zoo of their own creation. Kaylee Good invites your pupils to a fascinating improvisation focusing on characteristics, hierarchy and friendships of animals. Let them BE the zebra, experience how they feel when they meet the lion, the snake or the rabbit. Workshops are tailor-made to the age groups and interactive. Your pupils will experience a creative introduction to making theatre through using all their senses!
