Celebrating Literacy: Grade 2

The Art Museum of South Texas serves approximately 3,500 CCISD students annually, to connect performing arts and 2nd grade classroom curriculum.

During their visit, cultural myths of the past are compared to American culture and science today. Activities include student performances of The Night the Moon Fell: A Maya Myth retold by Pat Mora, dancing, hands-on drama activities and a brief gallery tour. A follow-up visit to each CCISD campus expands upon the art of drama and dance.
