Objective: students demonstrate the tools (body, mind, voice) and skills of imagination, imitation, and transformation needed to create a drama.

An energetic and delightful starter lesson for the beginning of a school year and a great classroom community activity! Students start by passing around real objects and transforming them in their imaginations, but the lesson becomes progressively more complex and begins to simulate the dramatic process between actor and director (part of the third grade objectives). Students practice leadership skills, communication skills, and creativity. This lesson can be used to integrate topics in Language Arts (e.g. action verbs) or Science (e.g. energy, force, motion) - read more details in the lesson. This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the Third Grade Curriculum.

Third Grade Drama Journal: Stick, Chair, Person

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
