Objects Walk & Talk Lesson: Personification
Objective: students will learn how observation and sound create characters.
This lesson focuses students on transformation with observation to create a drama (part of the fourth grade objectives). Students will observe physical items (list included) and personify them using body objects. If students haven’t learned or don’t remember body objects, teach that lesson first from our Introductory Lessons. This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the Fourth Grade Curriculum.
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 Fourth Grade Curriculum.
