Disney's Imagination Movers coming to Plymouth Stage

PLYMOUTH — The Flying Monkey Performance Center presents Imagination Movers on March 4 at 2 p.m. After partnering with Disney Junior Channel and winning an Emmy Award, their live show continues to create music that speaks to children, proving to be a hit with parents and children alike.

The Emmy-winning New Orleans-based Movers are known around the world for their hit preschool TV series seen on the Disney Junior cable channel. The Movers deliver a highly exhilarating and exciting rock concert experience where kids and parents will sing along with the Movers' hooky choruses, learn ridiculous dances and have a blast doing it. A dash of flying toilet paper and smoking trash cans thrown into a crowd-pleasing concert with real guitars and real drums makes for real fun.
Imagination Mover Rich Collins says: "Our goal is to make many of these kids' kids' first concert experience also one of their parents' most memorable experiences. We hope everyone leaves needing a nap!"
Tickets for Imagination Movers are $25, with kids under 2 free. For more information on upcoming shows or to purchase tickets call the box office at 536-2551 or go online at www.flyingmonkeyNH.com.

I-LES students track animals at Prescott Farm

LACONIA — Grade three students from Inter-Lakes Elementary School were able to take a field trip to Prescott Farm to practice some of the things they learned about tracking with Will Robinson from Prescott Farm. This was possible because of the support given to Inter-Lakes School District by the Geralynn Anne Fountain Foundation grant.

During  Robinson's February visits to school, students learned about print, pattern and place of winter mammals in our area. They looked at how each animal moves and discussed the pattern of tracks that they left behind. During their visit to the farm, students were engaged in two activities. One activity included storyboards where groups of students were given a story in animal track. They needed to tell the story orally to others about what was happening in their picture. The second activity was snowshoeing on the grounds of Prescott Farm to search for tracks.
