We are committed to supporting teachers and their students around the globe as they face unprecedented new learning challenges.  Please see the list below for some Discovery Theater resources that you can use for Distance Learning.  We will continue to expand this list and provide resources to inspire and engage school-aged children while they are at home.

Creative Tools for Teaching Website

The purpose of this site is to serve as an online resource to support early childhood educators in using arts integration, museum theater and improvisation to support instructional play in Pre-K and Kindergarten classrooms.
