Teacher Toolkit: Tableau (Elementary)

October 18, 2020


Watch a 4th grade bilingual class using Tableau to demonstrate their understanding. The name of this strategy comes from the term tableau vivant which means “living picture.” In this activity, students create a still picture, without talking, to capture and communicate the meaning of a concept.

This collaborative strategy is appealing to kinesthetic learners and allows all students to be creative while strengthening their comprehension of a concept.
