On March 1, Gribbin School students were treated to a cultural arts show at the Tilles Center, thanks to the Gribbin School PTA. The Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium Adventure show incorporated movement, music, puppetry, art, technology and science.

Leading up to the event, special area teachers worked together on activities designed to deepen the meaning of the performance experience, using the Tilles Center Arts-in-Education Aesthetic Model. Art teacher LeeAnn Palazzo had students create art projects that aligned with the creatures presented in the performance. Music teacher JoAnn Criblez and physical education teacher Mark Checola collaborated on a team lesson that had the students moving through space and working cooperatively as big, prehistoric creatures. A great time was had by all!
