Opera Treasure Chest
Opera Treasure Chest is a free program that includes TEKS-aligned interactive lesson plans culminating in a live opera performance (currently virtual) for students in grades K-5. Each lesson comes with the materials teachers need to help students experience opera while reinforcing writing skills, critical thinking and creativity. Activities can easily be integrated into a variety of Blended Learning Models for the music room or any arts integrated classroom. Teachers at participating schools “check out” treasure chests full of opera-related materials— including printed lesson plans, DVDs, books, and puppets. TEKs areas addressed by the Opera Treasure Chest include music, theatre, art, language arts, and health education.
