Acting Passover Outdoors
April 12 8:00 am
Passover story carry wisdom and traditions beyond religion. Therefore, in my program called, Let’s Play Hebrew, I took my students outside of the building, and we walked to the creek near by. With me being the story teller, the students were encouraged to find themselves a role within the storyline of Passover story.
Roles such as:
We used only what we found outdoor for our props. The slaves built pyramids from sticks, the audience added questions, and we acted out all the story with the students’ inputs.
In the end, we walked back to the building and I mentioned that now we walk in the desert for 40 years so it changed our way back as well.
The outdoors invites an unstructured learning, where each student can find their voice, place, role, location, movement in it.
Ideas for a follow up conversation:
-what does it mean to be a slave?
– in what ways we are slaves, if we are, in our lives?
-what does it mean to be privileged?
-what responsibility do we have if we are privileged?
And many more….
Date and time
April 12 8:00 am
The event will be located in Vancouver
There will be no fee for participants
There will be an educational component that invites participants to take something away that they can enact elsewhere (school, home, community-centre, etc.) and share their experience with others
Lessons will be offered by teachers/educators. They will be closed events that only the teacher and students participate in. Different classes many join up for a lesson, or even different schools and grade levels may collaborate for an outdoor lesson. Outdoor lessons are a chance to share what you are currently doing outdoors with other teachers/educators.
For lessons, WAV will share your outdoor teaching with other teachers/educators to help inspire them to take their teaching outdoors and offer some ideas about the range of learning that can happen outdoors.
