The Underground Theater presents: “The Community Beneath Our Feet”
Our project includes a complete kit to be shared by all interested in the IPM project we have produced. Our goal is to better inform students about soil and the organisms in and on the soil and also help them understand that the way we treat soil and plants makes an impact on our environment. The kit contains: An original play for school age children where the audience becomes characters in the play. A ‘how to video’ to help with background material; IPM information and ideas for developing the play, encouraging the facilitators to make it their own production. Reproducible drawings of organism that the audience participants will wear. An activity book (“The Bug-tivity Newspaper”) that is passed out to the audience. It contains IPM and good-bug, bad-bug information, experiments and other fun activities for the family that helps them understand more about our environment and how the choices we make affect it.
