My Room Lesson: Creating Setting

Objective: students use their imagination to create a setting for drama.

Students will have the chance to describe their bedroom, messy or neat, in partners.  Remind them about the Ask, Don’t Tell rule from our Introductory Lessons as the negotiation strategy to use when making a decision.  Students will use their body objects skills to create items in the room and demonstrate their story elements (dramatic & literary) as the “parent” encounters neat vs messy rooms (part of the 4th grade objectives).  As an alternative, you can use the book The Plant that Ate the Dirty Socks by Nancy McArthur with this lesson instead of "my room."  This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the Fourth Grade Curriculum.
