Minnesauke Elementary School sixth-graders in Jayne Murphy’s class helped to bring five scenes from the famous book “The Lightning Thief” to life during a recent in-school tableau performance.

During the event, the students worked in small groups to embody several of the book’s key characters. Visitors watched each scene in isolation, as the students performed in small, enclosed sections of the classroom. The performances were interactive, as the students remained frozen until a visiting viewer tapped them on the shoulder to bring them to life.  

The event was held in connection with the students study of the book and of ancient Greece, in particular gods and goddesses.
