FunSchoolShows.com with Larry Wirtz

Welcome!

 

Larry Wirtz is the creator of FunSchoolShows.com, a series curriculum based, educationally fun school assembly programs for students from kindergarten through the twelfth grade.  Regardless of the subject of the program, each unique assembly program was created by carefully blending various theories and scientific principles with the creative crafts of magic and comedy.  The rational was that by fusing the analytical sciences with the performing arts (along tangible visual object lessons) effectively eliminates any preconceived fears in the learning process.  This approach opens the students to a more positive learning experience.  The impression will be long lasting since everyone will see the theories working in a practical, yet highly entertaining manner. 


"Learning has never been so much FUN!"

The Magical World of Science

Learning comes alive as students witness (and participate) in science demonstrations that are not typically presented in the science classroom! Additionally, each program contains elements of chemistry, biology, meteorology, health, history, math & physical education.  Showing the relationship between the various disciplines is truly a multifaceted approach to teaching.  This allows the students to see that science really is all around us!

Red, White, Blue & YOU!

This diverse program is truly beneficial in that history and the social sciences are incorporated right along with curriculum standards and school priorities for citizenship and character development.  This program speaks to everyone on many different levels by blending visual object lessons, student (and teacher) involvement with a little bit of magic and humor to create a positive learning environment.  In the end, this unique approach will have a lasting impact as lessons will be remembered long after the program is over!
