Objective: students compare characters and situations in drama to situations and people in real life.

Bullying and being misunderstood are topics explored through the story “Ferdinand” by Munro Leaf. This lesson in our third grade sequence continues the comparison of people and situations in drama to real life (part of the third grade objectives) as well as continuing the study of personification and reality vs. fantasy in drama. In language arts, students sequence the plot before playing out the story. This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the Third Grade Curriculum.

Third Grade Drama Journal: Ferdinand

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
