Students love to open gifts! And, students love act!
This drama game is such fun! My students ask if we can play this drama game over and over!
Let me 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! Students love to learn by doing!!
Drama games are an exciting way to teach a concept, subject or idea through drama.
This drama activity emphasizes:
• creative movement
• physical expression
• vocal expression
• following directions
For this activity you will need a large cardboard box. I covered my large box with bright, sturdy, wrapping paper and made a lid that was connected that opened like a jewelry box lid. I also taped a flat index card to the box that read,
The students will use the large box as if it is gift for them from someone else. The students will think of an object and, using the step by step process, will create a short pantomimed scene for the class.
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
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.
“Magic Box” 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.
