Rhea Valley Elementary Students Present Benjamin Franklin Play

Two students on a stage acting in a play.On February 8, 2018, Mrs. Cathy Hutton’s fifth grade Intervention/Enrichment students presented the play, Ben Franklin: Philosopher, Inventor, Community Activist.  While producing the play, students learned how to manage props, curtains, and sound effects, as well as how to create their own costumes.

In the story, Katrina, a young girl living in 1994, meets up with Mr. Franklin, after she falls asleep in a museum. Her dreams take her to Benjamin Franklin’s home, where she witnesses his famous kite experiment. This play teaches students about the many inventions and contributions of Benjamin Franklin.
