Students Meet Petra’s Puppets

Students of Tooker Avenue Elementary School recently enjoyed a visit from ventriloquist Steve Petra, who presented “It’s Alive,” a curriculum-based assembly involving a myriad of entertaining puppets. During his presentation, Mr. Petra introduced students to characters including The Brain, The Stomach, The Lungs and The Heart.

The interactive performance explored how the body works and encouraged children to respect their bodies and minds. In addition to puppets, students learned how the body functions through the use of original songs and illusions.
