Home > Education > Georgia Performance Standards

All three programming areas at the Center for Puppetry Arts (performance, puppet-making workshops and museum) meet Georgia Pre-K Bright from the Start Content Standards and Georgia Performance Standards (GPS). Filling out a Field Trip Rationale Form is easy – simply choose the production you will be seeing with your class, and click on the appropriate grade. Each document lists sample GA Pre-K and GPS in Language Arts, Character Education, and Fine Arts for all three programming areas.

Access a complete list of GA Performance Standards at GA Pre-K Bright from the Start Content Standards:

NOTE: Classroom Implementation for the national Common Core standards in the state of Georgia is being rolled out during academic year 2012-2013. Please visit for more information about the Common Core State Standards Initiative in English Language Arts and Mathematics and specifics as they relate to Georgia.

A visit to the Center for Puppetry Arts can support Common Core standards/initiatives in the following ways:
2) Introduce live performance as a type of text
3) Provide a living, breathing example of the blend of informational and literary text
4) Present new academic vocabulary
5) Reinforce content-area knowledge

All lists are in .pdf format. To download Adobe Acrobat Reader for free, click here.
