CONCORD, N.C. — Educators have had to get creative during the pandemic to ensure learning is not lost. As students learn from home, many ways of teaching have had to change in order to accommodate the virtual setting.
That's why Dominion Energy and The National Theatre for Children are entertaining and educating students across the country, including here in North Carolina, by finding creative ways to teach complicated subjects. The groups created a live stream for schools to teach students about STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math.)
Cabarrus Charter Academy, among other local schools, had their students watch "The Clue That Burned Blue Live Stream Special" Tuesday morning, where they learned all about natural gas.
A host from The National Theatre for Children taught students about energy conservation, safety and having a family emergency communication plan with the help of his comical cast of characters. Each cast performed skits that broke down the topics of natural gas and kept kid's attention!
During this live stream, the host also answered questions in real-time from teachers and students, then provided additional activities and materials following the show.
There are additional lesson plans for teachers and activities for students available below.
