If you only do one thing...

We know time is tight so here is just one activity you could do with your class before or after watching the event.

Design your own magical shop (EXA 2-04a, TCH 2-11a, SOC 2-21a)

Imagine you can open your own magical shop in your town or city. You could have a magical bakery with enchanted cakes or a shoe shop that sells shoes that help you always dance in rhythm. What kind of shop would it be? What would it sell? What would each room have? Draw your shop front and design the floor plan inside, including some of the products you’d sell.
