Create a Magic Show

Task:

Unleash Some Magic in Your Classroom

With a partner from this class, you must find and rehearse six magic tricks to amaze and fascinate your classmates. You have seven days to prepare for this performance so it has to be entertaining.

We will be putting on several shows over the course of next week. We will film our performances for prosperity, do performances for other classes in the school, go busking at lunchtime and maybe do an assembly item.
