Last week, Wildwood’s Arts in Education Artist Patty Carreras worked with 3rd through 5th graders at Robinson Elementary. Patty Carreras is a theatre professional who incorporates theatre, movement and dance into classroom topics. Through this residency, students learned about science and nutrition through interactive performances and acting. Each class performed a play for parents, teachers, and peers on Friday. These plays included the “Dr. Oz Show,” which taught students about the cardiovascular system and exercise, and “The Yummy Awards,” which taught students about the benefits of healthy eating.
