The Long Ago Community Lesson: Remembering & Celebrating Important Events

Objective: students demonstrate improvisation to show how drama is used to celebrate and remember important events.

This Life Drama takes place over several days and has the students creating a fictional tribe of people facing calamity, surviving, and then celebrating the outcome.     Students work through an improvisational process where there is no pre-written story or pre-determined outcome.  They apply the practice of "no denial of creation" or saying “yes” to what others create as a way to support the drama and honor the imagination of others.  You might choose to play in role in this drama or act as a guide on the side, either way is a joyful experience.  This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the Second Grade Curriculum.
