Sean's directorial debut
On the last day of school, Sean's teacher sent home a cd filled with photos and videos of Sean and his classmates. Amongst these I found a video of Sean and two of his classmates Megan and Nur. It's a skit from their Unit of Inquiry on Light. Here, the three of them are demonstrating the importance of sun's light to life. Sean said he came up with the idea and he and his friends rehearsed the skit for a few minutes.
Sean is a herbivore eating a plant (Megan). When the sun (Nur) dies, the plant dies, and Sean the herbivore goes "Help me" before it dies too. I told Sean it was really apt that Nur is the sun because the word Nur actually means Light in Arabic. When I asked Sean why he chose to be the herbivore, his reply was, "My population gets to last the longest." How self-serving!
