STORY BOXES: Looking Beyond the Book, Thinking Inside the Box 
Facilitator: Amanda Whiteman, DC/MD/VA Wolf Trap Master Teaching Artist

Discover how story boxes facilitate a range of early childhood developmental domains and enhance children’s learning in the classroom while utilizing a variety of learning styles and intelligences. Learn how creating a box full of found objects and a little imagination can provide dance, theatrical, and creative experiences. In this workshop, educators explore tools to enrich and extend children’s literature using a form of Wolf Trap Coffee Can Theater to ignite a way of thinking that will allow the teacher to see the book beyond the page and bring it to life with creative arts experiences. Includes handout.

DANCING LIKE A SCIENTIST: Early STEM/Arts 
Facilitator: Amanda Whiteman, DC/MD/VA Wolf Trap Master Teaching Artist

How can dance promote the natural scientist in all children? Dancers use many of the same skills to explore their world as scientists, developing skills in observing, classifying, predicting, experimenting and communicating. By connecting the creative and kinesthetic sides of children to the analytical, we help children develop a deeper understanding of the world around them. This workshop will help you discover ways to engage children, asking them to look at their world through the eyes of a scientist and a dancer. They aren’t as different as you may think! Includes handout.
