This charming play shares the themes of multiculturalism, winter, kindness and forgiveness and the new year. Students strengthen their study of other cultures, reading (fluency), speaking (diction) and listening skills (restating) while learning to work cooperatively. This is excellent and very suitable for a Vocal Music, Social Studies or Drama class.
Based on the beloved Japanese folk tale by the same name, students will have an opportunity to:
• dramatize a folk tale using many of the elements of drama
• create straw hats
• design snowflakes
• sing an original song written in a pentatonic scale
• and use their imaginations to express emotion through movement.
Integrate with your vocal music teacher and present the play together! Your students can sing and accompany the song with metallophones, xyllophones and percussion.

• script with stage directions to help you be successful
