Becoming the Body Lesson

Becoming the Body Lesson

Collaboration is a crucial skill for students to cultivate across all academic subjects. To that end, we have written a lesson that integrates the drama skills of collaboration and transformation with the scientific skills of identifying and explaining the function of different body parts.  This lesson is well-suited for students in grades K-5.

NOTE: Becoming the Body is part of our unique library of integrated lessons. These specialized lessons simultaneously teach concepts and skills related to drama and the other subject(s) targeted in the lesson. In addition, these lessons are designed to meet National Standards for Drama and for the integrated subject(s), so you can reach learning goals across multiple disciplines.
