MARIETTA, Ga. -- We've always known that fairy tales offer lessons, but a teaching team at Ford Elementary School in Cobb County has found a way to put STEAM into it.
STEAM is an acronym for science, technology, engineering, arts and math.
A team of teachers collaborated to make sure they covered all of those areas with their young students -- through a project called the "Three Piggy Opera."
On the day of the opera, the parents and grandparents of the second graders packed the music room with their cameras poised.
As this story begins, three very hard-working pigs try to go on with their daily duties when a wolf hungry for pork tries to blow down their houses. It's a classic tale with a modern day twist.
