A great team builder! Your students will have so fun creating four tableaux, frozen, silent, motionless photos or stage pictures!
Students love creating Drama!
Let me share my years of experience and my wealth of knowledge in the successful exploration of adding DRAMA to your class curriculum!
This is a great cooperative group drama activity. It allows groups of students to create four tableaux to show different creative family portraits or pictures with their bodies. Students will learn about how to create an interesting photograph composition and develop expressive characters.
Students love to learn by doing!! Drama games are an exciting way to teach a concept through drama. The students learn all about creating characters, creating the illusion of a scene, creating interesting frozen photos.
This activity includes:
• Complete activity instruction
• Character development ideas
• List of family portrait ideas
Many teachers shy away from using drama games in their classrooms because the drama resources do not give a step by step guide in order to successfully teach the activity!
“Greetings From Marrs” activities are:
• created by a veteran drama teacher
• easy to follow step-by-step instruction
• everything you will need to be able to teach exciting and valuable drama games to your students
• student favorite drama activities
• lesson plans that focus on the important information to successfully teach the activity
Actively engage your students while reinforcing the cooperative group work, physical expression and communication skills.
This super-fun drama activity supports the National Core Arts Standards.
Teachers who incorporate the arts, especially theatre, operate in an active “hands-on” and “minds-on” capacity. And, their students love it!
Any teacher, who has seen a student become excited, energized and confident through artistic exploration has seen first-hand how arts education engages children and contributes to their overall development.
“Family Portraits” offers everything needed to provide an interesting, innovative, step-by-step lesson plan so that any teacher can confidently incorporate DRAMA into the classroom learning.
An optional part of the activity would be to allow the students to use a digital camera to take pictures of the family portraits and then put them in a slide show with captions and music.
Thanks for visiting my TPT store! I hope you find products that excite you and your students!
