Overview: this foundational activity starts building skills in groups new to drama work.
In this activity, students use their bodies to create setting and props. This activity will increase the concentration, imagination, and teamwork of your group. They will also develop skills related to "mind" and "body" of the three drama tools (body, mind, voice). We also created the Body Objects lesson from this activity to provide an example of how to turn our many activities into full lessons. Have fun adapting this to the interests of your own students with our compliments.
This activity is also a part of our Introductory Lessons guide [requires subscription] for those just getting started with drama integration. There are 7 lessons in the guide to lay the foundation to enable students to move into deeper and more integrated work.
