Objective: students adapt and or revise story details. Students combine the primary tools (body, mind, voice) and a secondary tool (a prop) to create a drama.

Students have fun with a scarf, passing it and transforming it. They participate in a story about a crying baby and then, in teams, adapt that story into their own story using the scarf (part of the third grade objectives). This challenges students to use drama tools and simple props in a drama. Bring in scarves or different colored fabrics to use as the props. Before starting this lesson, review our techniques for viewing and sharing student work. This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the Third Grade Curriculum.

Third Grade Drama Journal: Scarf Tale

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
