Cut! To the Chase


Grades k-6Foods, Drama, Music, English Language Arts, Health, Social StudiesEnglish

When Chase is tasked with rewriting the school play, he looks to Aesop and his fables for inspiration.

Using nutritional tid-bits he picks up throughout the week, Chase ends up adapting The Tortoise and the Hare for a musical stage show that caters to everything Chase loves—track and field, food, storytelling, and besting his running rival, Gordon “Lightning” Smith.
