Objective: students practice concentration while working with other actors using positive non-distracting behaviors.
Building on the previous Mirror lesson
, students continue working with partners and practicing audience behaviors (part of the kindergarten objectives
). Students gain experience in practicing a drama as the traditional Mirror exercise morphs into a story called The Caveman
for partners to act out. Download the story to complete the materials for this lesson. Other stories with partner work that could be substituted (or repeated): “There’s a Nightmare in my Closet,” “The Stubborn Clay
,” and “The Ghost Who Couldn’t Scare
.” This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the Kindergarten Curriculum
