B.J.’s Journey Lesson:  Body Objects Transformation

Objective: students collaborate with a partner using negotiation strategies and applying concentration, imagination, imitation, and transformation skills.

Students transform their bodies into objects and then into settings with a team of other actors for the story B.J.’s Journey.   Students work alone, with a partner, and then with a team to use a variety of collaborative and planning strategies to complete the story.  The students also continue to focus on C.I.T.I. (concentration, imagination, transformation, imitation) competence (part of the 2nd grade objectives).  More work with the actor’s tools (mind, body, voice) prepares them for integrated work.  Download B.J.'s Journey to complete the materials. When student teams are ready to decide who on their team will play B.J., remind them about the Ask, Don’t Tell rule from our Introductory Lessons as the beginning negotiation strategy to use when making a decision.  This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the Second Grade Curriculum.
