Geometry +11 Age Levels Preschool (0 to 4 years old), Primary (5 to 8 years old)

This interactive play created by Creative Tools for Teaching team is infused with pre-literacy, pre-numeracy, and inquiry-based activities. It celebrates family and the many things we are thankful for! Grandma has arrived for the holiday—and that can only mean making puppets, cooking together, washing the car, and learning lots of fun new things. This musical play with a great big heart brings the whole audience into the family with singing, finger play, and call-and response as we all give thanks for being together. Presented by Discovery Theater--a pan-institutional museum theater dedicated to bringing theatre to young audiences and general visitors on and off the Mall since 1969.
