Today, the kids started working on their script. In their new movie, they'll walk us through Darwin's life from his childhood to his old age, including, of course, his trip to South America and how the clues he gathered helped him solve the Mystery of Mysteries!
They worked in teams of two or three, discussed the characters, the costumes, the props and the backgrounds.
Everybody worked hard, even Sprout!
Next class we'll discuss Sprout's character. He'll probably be Darwin's dog, Polly, who was a terrier, just like Sprout. Aren't we lucky?
Or perhaps Polly will be played by someone else!
