The board game called, ‘Guesstures” in a great classroom activity to allow your students to participate in a cooperative game, taking turns, following rules, displaying good sportsmanship, and learning vocabulary.
You will need the board game called, “Guesstures”. It can be purchased at various stores, such as, Target and Walmart, and thrift stores, like Goodwill.
The students will be using acting skills to act out words for their teammates.
To play my classroom version of the game, the students will be divided into two groups--group A and group B.
A team captain and score keeper for each team is chosen.
The teams take turns as the captains of their teams choose players, one at a time.
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
• complete, 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
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.
“Guesstures!” 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.( except the game itself)
