$4.00Add to cart

Objective: students combine the tools of drama (body, mind, voice) with the processes of planning and practicing to create a drama.

Students play animal characters and speak dialogue in this tale of friendship and prejudice. Students develop more experience in planning, practicing and presenting (the three P’s) as found in our second grade objectives. In addition, students analyze and reenact the "Why Frog and Snake Don’t Play Together Any More" story, which is adapted from an old folktale. The story will bring up deep and rewarding discussions about how we treat others in our lives. This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the Second Grade Curriculum.

Second Grade Drama Journal: Frog and Snake

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 Second Grade Curriculum
