This Set Design unit, part of my Drama Lessons and Units product line, is suitable for gifted upper elementary through ninth grade students. At the request of a reviewer, I created additional set piece templates for my Set Design Unit product, so your reviewer of products do matter!
This eight day unit on set design was created for upper elementary gifted and middle grade students through ninth grade. Students learn about the history of set design, famous set designers and develop a critical eye about what makes up an award winning set design. Using fairy tales as their subject and setting, they create a ground plan for a story of their choosing and draw a rendering. In addition, the students must work with ratios and measuring. The first two assignments are completed individually, but then the fun begins! The students are paired up to create a model working together towards the goal. There is even room for parents to celebrate the end of the unit with your students.

Set Design Templates Product

Note: These templates are sketched on l/2 grid paper. The students can use them as examples, but they will not be the correct measurements if they merely trace them.
There are eleven templates:
