The Fox in a Box Experience

Fox in a Box Setup

Fox in a Box

Fox in a Box is an interactive school exhibit 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.

About Fox in a Box

The Fox in a Box experience consists of an interactive discussion, multi-media presentations, and activities tailored for the students' 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 metro-Atlanta area elementary schools.

The Fox Theatre currently offers two versions of the Fox in a Box exhibit. Both tell the Fox's history and align with the Georgia Performance Standards for Kindergarten through 5th grades.
