Marty Inspired Statue Garden

After reading Chapter 8, we were inspired to try our own Stature Garden.  The students in Marty’s class were asked to improvise by creating a statue garden.  A student was asked to pick a place and describe who they were in that scene.  Then one by one, a group of students had to add another character to the scene.  Once the statue garden was set, the director said, “Action” and the statues had to come to life and do what would come next in the scene.  Our class did this improvise activity.  Please see below.
