One Cold, Wet Night

We had a blast reading, exploring and retelling One Cold, Wet Night by Joy Cowley and June Meisner.

One of the student's favourite characters in the story was a giant weta.  A weta is a large insect that is found in New Zeland that is related to the grasshopper.  Take a look...

The students worked in groups to practice and then perform their retelling.  The practiced over several days, cooperatively created a cast list, made their props and costumes, and then performed together.  They really enjoyed collaborating and performing.  Job well done!
