Fox in a Box



About Fox in a Box:

Fox in a Box is an interactive school exhibit that focuses on how important events in the Fox Theatre’s timeline intersect with key classroom lessons, from American history and the Civil Rights Movement to economics and the importance of communities.  Elementary students are challenged to think about how communities come together to share an experience and to protect what’s important to them.

Fox in Box is available free of charge to metro-Atlanta area elementary schools.
