Roxaboxen is a module that invites students into dreamed-up civilizations where they use their imaginations to transform ordinary objects into extraordinary things. Students will design and create their own civilization and invite play into their day through games and art experiences. This module is a colorful experience for students as they explore the color wheel and the unique beauty of the colors amethyst, amber and sea green. By the end of the module, students will believe they are not too small to have big dreams.
