We are in a co-op of families using Tapestry of Grace curriculum, and we try to do two big Unit Celebrations each year. Year 4 is modern history from 1900 to Present so we just finished learning about the 1920's.
The families that have done this in the past have had small groups of kids write their own radio shows and then present them at the Unit Celebration. We were a little short on time so we opted to perform a program that was already written. The group chose the infamous "The War of the Worlds" by Orson Welles.
I have to brag on these kids. They had just 3 weeks to practice, and they nailed it. Nailed it firmly, decisively to the wall. They rocked. Jake was Farmer Wilmuth, the first Martian space ship to hit earth landed on his farm.
The scene reminded me of Jeff Foxworthy..."you might be a redneck if, on more than one occasion, you've described how the tornado carried your trailer house away ."
The little kids wore 1920's type costumes. Ella came as herself, a little girl. ;p
