Objective: students interpret emotions and actions of a character in a story.

Students discuss emotions in small groups and tell stories about when they felt a certain way (part of the third grade objectives). Then, students enact one or two of the stories from their team. This lesson integrates well with character education lessons, personal journaling, and with being able to analyze character feelings and motivations in stories and literature. This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the Third Grade Curriculum.

Third Grade Drama Journal: Emotion Stories

To maximize student achievement, download this drama journal for students to use as reflection or formative assessment. For each lesson in the curriculum, we have created a corresponding journal page for your students. A drama journal allows participants to reflect on their learning and artistic growth (metacognition). It also allows you, the teacher, to see how students are using the drama vocabulary, thinking about big ideas, and perceiving their own strengths and weaknesses. If you use the journal for assessment and would like more assessment tools, visit our Third Grade Curriculum
