Who Let The Birds Out

Through music, dance and drama, Kindergarten and 1st grade students share all they have explored in the amazing world of "Birds". This unit's performing arts exhibit features an original story that tells the adventures of Ms. Hawkins' class pet, "Uncle Feathers" who escapes from the classroom one day and gets lost in the nearby mango tree. Seeking the help of feathered friends in the bird kingdom, Uncle Feathers finds his way back home with the help of mynah birds, red robins a few mischievous vultures and even a family of ducks.

Unique to this performance was the collaboration of Innovations' middle school students who performed all of the musical numbers in support of the Kindergarten and 1st grade performers. Innovations' middle school band and choral groups provided musical accompaniment and vocal support as well as choreography for some of the dance moves.
