Open Scenes Lesson

Open Scenes Lesson

Challenge students to read between the lines and play distinctive characters in these open-ended scenes. With dialogue that purposefully leaves details up to the imagination, this lesson can be used with students to work on collaboration, imitation, transformation, and planning and practicing skills. You may also integrate Language Arts by challenging students to use inferences to draw conclusions about what is going on in each scene.
