Back to the Future

Throughout the spring semester, our students studied Classical music by various composers including Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, (Clara) Schumann, and Tchaikovsky. The students first started with a role-playing exercise, writing a letter to the future as one of the composers. The second part of this “Imagination Exercise” saw students responding to the letter in the present…as themselves!

Below is a sample of the best “time capsule” letters and responses from our 4-6 grade students. Enjoy!
