THE MARTHA GAME (Build A Scene)-
Who knows why this drama game is named after a girl named Martha? I always add the “build a scene” reference when creating the set-up for this activity so that my students make the connection of our goal or purpose in this wonderful game. This drama activity emphasizes:
• creative body movement
• ensemble teamwork
• setting/scene creation
The object of the game is to have 8-12 people come to the stage, one player at a time, each player choosing a different object or item to represent in a selected scene or setting.
This activity includes:
• complete, detailed instructions
• List of scene starter settings
Students love drama! This is an engaging activity that can be used to reinforce setting through the formation of a detailed scene.
I am excited to share my years of experience and my wealth of knowledge in the successful exploration of adding DRAMA to your class curriculum! I have taught drama and speech for 30 years! Try using drama in your class and you will be hooked!
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 needed to successfully teach the activity
This creative 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.
“The Martha Game (Build a Scene)” 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.
