Overview: students learn what story elements (character or setting) or words give us clues in a drama.

In this lesson plan, we address determining story elements, identifying text clues,  and demonstrating different types of movement.  In the book Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown, a bunny asks his mother what she would do if he transformed into different objects.  In this lesson students explore locomotor and nonlocomotor movement as the bunny transforms into different characters.
