What’s Included in the Lesson Plans?

Our lessons are filled with everything your students need to know pre and post show. Your students will be able to follow along with you on their own devices or as you project it on a screen. Interactive elements such as articles, videos, quizzes and polls are available in each lesson to help engage your students in the subject.

Although The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati makes every effort to ensure the quality of its published lesson plans, the teacher is ultimately responsible for providing successful and appropriate instruction. 

Please Be Advised:

Teachers should read lesson plans carefully and critically, with an eye to their own needs and the needs of their students. We encourage teachers to add, delete, or rearrange lesson plan slides as they believe appropriate.

Teachers should carefully review any resources linked from our website or recommended in lesson plans before presenting them to students. Please read or view any recommended books, films, articles, or other learning materials to confirm that they are appropriate to your classroom and students.

Although we review linked websites and resources before publishing a lesson plan, the content of external sites may change without notice. If you find something in a web resource linked from a lesson plan that is not appropriate for a K–12 audience, please let us know.
