Objective: students practice concentration and observation while work together with other actors.
Students have fun following the movements of a partner in this very traditional exercise called The Mirror.  With this lesson they move deeper into the use of C.I.T.I. (concentration, imagination, transformation, imitation) in drama (part of the 2nd grade objectives).   Students also gain experience in planning and practicing a drama as the traditional Mirror exercise morphs into a story called The Caveman for partners to act out:  download both the exercise and the story to complete the materials.  This lesson can be repeated many times and you will see the concentration deepen.  Want to spice it up?  There are a variety of different mirror exercises in our list of activities that will provide days of enjoyment and learning. This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the Second Grade Curriculum.
