The Humpty Dumpty Lesson

The Humpty Dumpty Lesson

Objective: students identify the three tools (body, mind, voice) in drama.
Many children know the nursery rhyme Humpty Dumpty.  We employ it here for students to practice skills with the body, mind and voice – also known as the actor’s tools (part of the kindergarten objectives).    Students use their body to imitate a variety of actions both as a warm-up and as you read the story aloud to them.  This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the Kindergarten Curriculum.
