Dance Project

Oh Wow! What a great idea! I’d be happy to see the results as well.
thank-you for sharing 🙂


The students in Grade One are working on improving their collaboration this term. To assess collaboration and physical education, the teachers have given the students a little project to work on.

In groups, the students will be creating a dance for One Direction’s “Drag Me Down.”

The students will be assessed on their ability to:

  • Ability to work productively in groups
  • Participate actively as a member of a group and individual
  • Create an original dance that correlates to the mood of the song (ex: happy song means a happy dance, etc)
  • Translating key words from song lyrics into dance movements

The students will be graded holistically on these criterion as groups, though individual contributions will be taken into account, and this will be a part of their summative assessment for P.E. this term.

Of course, we do not expect the student performances to be perfect and mistakes…
