Let's Dance !
- a prezi webquest Introduction:

Dance is an art form that generally refers to movement of the body, usually rhythmic and to music, used as a form of expression, social interaction or presented in a spiritual or performance setting. It also has been used as a way of communication between humans. Dance has been around for hundreds of years and developed into many different forms such as ballet, modern, tap, lyrical, jazz, hip hop, and even break dancing.In our community, we meet different people from different cultures and varied backgrounds. Teacher page -Overview/Introduction :
Jackie Bloom, Helen Thoma , Kelly Fargo and Elena Caba

This pretzi -lesson is for 3rd- 5th graders.
Students will look up different forms of dance and tell what meaning is behind them. At the end of class they will perform a dance that they created as a group and answer questions to make use of vocabulary related to feelings.This web-quest is different because it does not have students simply reading materials off the internet. It has them viewing videos of different forms of dance and learning that there is meaning behind them. This lesson allows students to dance and move about in a constructive way, allowing many students to dance for their first time. Step 1: Split into the preassigned groups of 3 or 4 Task:
Your task is to pretend that you are a foreign choreographer who has just arrived in NY. You are amazed about the cultural diversity here. You need to put together a show at the Radio City Hall in Manhattan.The expectation is that today you explore different types of dance from around the world and use this form of art to express your feelings in English.
After completing this lesson, you will have learned about a specific kind of dance and created one of your own that tells a story. Step 2: Click on the image of the type of dance your group has been assigned Step 3: Answer the questions listed under all of the pictures on paper given to you. Resources: Group 1: Ballet
Group 2: Modern
Group3: Hip Hop
Group 4: Ballroom
Group 5: Indian
Group 6: Salsa Please answer the following questions on your paper about the videos that you just watched.

1. What type of dance was it?

2. What do you think the dancer was feeling as dancing?

3. What do you think the meaning behind the dance was?

4. If you were having the same feelings that you believe were felt in the dance, how would you express them?

5. How is dance different than any other form of art such as music, or painting? Now that you have watched a video on a type of dance and know that feelings can be expressed through dance and motion, create a dance with your group that tells a story. You should be able to tell the class about this. This dance should be about 1-2 minutes long and contain 5 or more of your groups favorite moves that you have seen in the videos.

I understand that not everyone is a dancer, so the grade will be on effort, and if you followed the guidelines. This is how your work will be evaluated: Evaluation : Dance and Language Objective Rubric - Ms. Jackie Bloom, Ms. Helen Thoma, Ms. Kelly Fargo and Ms. Elena Caba

If you do not have enough room in your classroom for your students to perform, see about using the gym or school auditorium, however, that is more formal and may make some students uncomfortable. If this is the case, then have the student look up more dances of the type and compare them. Teacher Resources:
