Objective: students combine the primary tools (body, mind, voice) with a support tool (prop) and with the skills of collaboration, concentration, transformation, audience behaviors, to create a drama.
Drama and machines have much in common.  Students collaborate to complete a task of building an interactive machine using their moving bodies and vocal sound effects (part of the 3rd grade objectives).   Students must then problem solve to introduce a prop of some type that must be integrated into the machine.  Teams must collaborate and create together to accomplish the task.  This lesson integrates beautifully with the teaching of simple and compound machines.  This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the Third Grade Curriculum.
