Acting Story Lesson

Acting Story Lesson using Body Objects activity

Overview: this lesson combines drama skills with a story to form a drama.

This FREE lesson couples an acting story (included) with body objects work to create a Drama.  Using a story turns the Body Object activity into a Drama.  The goal for participants is to demonstrate how concentration, imagination, imitation, and collaboration are used in drama.  This lesson steps you through the action providing teaching tips, assessments and further integration ideas.  We designed this drama lesson to follow after the Skills and Vocabulary Lesson.  

This lesson is part of our Get Started guide that lays the foundation for more integrated work.
