Objective: students use personification in a drama. Students compare characters and situations in a drama to situations and people in real life.
Where does the wind come from? How are great storms made? This is a wonderful science lesson but also could be used as a character education lesson addressing anti- bullying. Building on the Fire Lesson
, students use their bodies and senses to personify wind (part of the third grade objectives
). Students are encouraged to do their own research on weather conditions but a brief background on wind is provided. The lesson can become a two-day lesson if students need more time to research their science content for use in the drama. This story goes perfectly with Aesop’s Fable “The Wind and the Sun
.” A brief warm-up activity is provided called Feather
to capture the qualities of the wind character needed for the story; the full activity can be downloaded from the website. This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the Third Grade Curriculum
