- The students got into groups of 4 or 5 and chose a special holiday or special day i.e. Birthday, Christmas, Eid, Hanukkah, Mother's Day, Father's Day, July 4th, Canada Day, Halloween, Easter, March Break etc.
- Then they modeled their holiday story on the 12 days of Christmas song.
- Once the students decided on 12 items to get on their special day, they developed 12 different tableaux to creatively represent their special day.
- Break the tableaux rules and allow them to bring simple props into their tableaux to create engagement and interest for the audience. Think of this assignment like an old silent film.
