The Fox in a Box Experience

Fox in a Box Setup

FOX IN A BOX

Fox in a Box is an interactive school program that focuses on how important events in the Fox Theatre’s timeline intersect with key classroom lessons, from American history and the Civil Rights Movement to economics and the importance of communities. Elementary students are challenged to think about how communities come together to share an experience and to protect what’s important to them.

The in-person Fox in a Box experience (Versions 1 and 2) includes an interactive discussion and multi-media presentations and the virtual (Version 3) experience is a recorded presentation of the same content.  Student activities are tailored for the children’s grade level. Kindergarten through 2nd graders may complete matching, math, and coloring activities, while 3rd through 5th graders have the opportunity to work on a matching timeline, short story, and creative drawing activities. The students conclude their experience with a fun group photo wall activity.  Fox in Box is available free of charge to Georgia’s elementary schools.
