Pirates teach water lessons ;
By ROSE MARIE EASH
That helped Susan Paxson lose 60 pounds.
Memorial Elementary students saw “Water Pirates ofNeverland” presented by the Edwards Underground Water District Wednesday afternoon and learned about water quality, water pollution and the proper disposal of household hazardous waste.
Matt eastern and John Mikkelsen with the Small Change Original Theater group of Minneapolis, Minnesota, ate acting out a story that tells children about how the aquifer works, how it can be harmed and what that would mean to humans and animals on earth.
The play, complete with costumes, sets and props, interacts with the children keeping their attention, entertaining and teaching. It is being presented to 80 schools throughout the Edwards Aquifer region in Comal, Hays, Medina and Bexar counties.
The children at Memorial Elementary were enthusiastic and attentive.
"This is the second year we’ve had them come," said Sharon Tate, Principal at Memorial Elementary. "The teachers say that the children really enjoy it and remember what they've been told about the aquifer."
The live educational theater production is sponsored by the Edwards Underground Water District and often an alternative method of teaching from traditional lesson plans.
"Preserving the aquifer’s water quality is a difficult concept," said Cinde Thomas-Jimenez. "The Small Change Original Theater touring company uses simple sets and audience participation to convey the message. Teachers receive classroom materials so they can reinforce what the children learned from the play."
For more information on the program caU the EUWD at 1-800-292-1047.
