Students in House King are working on their production of William Shakespeare’s Star Wars: The Jedi Doth Return.
In Social Studies, Year 9 students are learning the principles of democracy and leadership as they immerse themselves as directors in this complex play. They are also exploring concepts in Math through the use of 3-D composite solids in their work designing set pieces and scaled matte paintings to use as backdrops, much as the original films did.
As a component of their investigations in Science, Year 8 students have been examining the relationships between organisms and the environment as they examine their characters from a multitude of possible intergalactic locations, as well as using paper craft models in Math to learn surface area and volume while creating viral marketing for the production.
Students are very excited to share all of their hard work with a performance open to the general public at the downtown central library on Monday November 9th.
As always, May the Force be with you!!
