Our Earth, What a Gas!
The Grand Falloons use their former career with the Big Apple Circus to examine the bubble of our atmosphere, what we need to survive in it, and the carbon/oxygen/hydrogen exchange between plant and animal kingdoms. Circus skills, Vaudeville routines, and song and dance numbers engage the audience in how litter, pollution, and other wasted resources threaten life. The program represents a collaboration with several museums and other non-profit organizations to produce an entertaining program based on earth science curriculum standards for public schools. Dishing up intriguing facts with laughter and fun, the Grand Falloons help start their young audiences on a life-long journey of awareness of our limited resources and the part everyone plays in keeping nature’s balance.
