The third grade is exploring the theme of Chicago heroes using an integrated curriculum in social studies and spectacle arts.  In their social studies unit on Chicago history students took on the question “Who were the everyday heroes of our city?”. They examined the history of the great Chicago fire identifying the characteristics of the everyday heroes who helped to rebuild the city. Through performance exercises and shadow techniques they developed a way to visualize themselves as those everyday heroes.
