Common Core Georgia Performance Standards and Georgia Performance Standards supported by RAINFOREST ADVENTURES GRADE 3 All three areas of programming at the Center for Puppetry Arts (performances, Create-A-Puppet Workshops and Museum exhibits) support Common Core Georgia Performance Standards (CCGPS). Listed below are relevant Grade 3 standards supported by all three programming areas during a visit to the Center for Puppetry Arts. NOTE: Relevant Georgia Performance Standards in Fine Arts (based on The National Standards for Arts Education) and Next Generation Science Standards are also listed. A visit to the Center for Puppetry Arts supports Common Core standards/initiatives in the following ways: 1) Encourage higher-level thinking skills and rich conversation as students analyze how their lessons are a part of the puppet play/workshop/Museum exhibits 2) Introduce live performance as a type of text 3) Provide a living, breathing example of the blend of informational and literary text 4) Present new academic vocabulary 5) Reinforce content-area knowledge I.

PUPPET-MAKING WORKSHOP Here are some of the Grade 3 educational standards that can be supported when your students participate in a Create-A-Puppet Workshop at the Center for Puppetry Arts (where they will enjoy an instructor-led learning activity and/or construct, decorate and perform with their very own puppet): CONCEPTS/TOPICS EXPLORED IN INSTRUCTOR-LED CREATE-A-PUPPET WORKSHOP LEARNING ACTIVITY: puppetry, types of puppets, ecosystems, conservation Grade 3 educational standards RAINFOREST ADVENTURES • Page 4 COMMON CORE GEORGIA PERFORMANCE STANDARDS MATHEMATICS Standards for Mathematical Practice 1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. 2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively. 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. 4. Model with mathematics. 5. Use appropriate tools strategically. 6. Attend to precision GEOMETRY Reason with shapes and their attributes. MCC3.G.1 Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories. MCC3.G.2 Partition shapes into parts with equal areas. Express the area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole. For example, partition a shape into 4 parts with equal area, and describe the area of each part as 1/4 of the area of the shape.
