Do Your Students Have Opinions About Theatre?3-3-14

HKELD is all about promoting the performing arts in Hong Kong. A love for the arts is a culturally important aspect of life and students are usually encouraged at school to develop such an interest. Whether they do or not is up to them but we thought it would be interesting to find out what they really think about, (for example) a mandated play they were forced to watch for a school trip.

This game is called The Nutcracker and is a perfectly themed game for Christmas time in the classroom. First you're gonna need some sweet tunes from The Nutcracker so get them on your MP3 player stat! Explain the concept of a Nutcracker to your kids. It's made of wood and has very stiff joints. Basically the class is going to be a pile of Nutcrackers and slowly come to life with magic.
