Objective: students demonstrate the planning process needed to create a drama.

Students create a rodeo (e.g. bull roping, pig catching, clowning, elegant horse riders) with no practicing time as a team; the rodeo is a struggle. As they reflect on the process, they discover the need to plan and practice as a team in order to be successful (part of the third grade objectives). Following a team practice, the rodeo is now successful. This lesson can be used to integrate topics related to the Western US or regions of the United States - read more details in the lesson. This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the Third Grade Curriculum.

Third Grade Drama Journal: Rodeo Stars

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 Third Grade Curriculum
