DRAMA MACHINES (also known as ESSENCE MACHINES) are a classic drama activity! This resource comes with detailed instructions PLUS Drama / Essence Machine Cards which provide example machine elements for 13 different Drama Machines. Know exactly what to add to drama machines with this great drama resource.


DRAMA TRUNK Drama Machine cards contain example elements for different machines so that when students are starting Drama Machines, they can be provided with specific examples and the cards also provide teachers with examples for their own inspiration. Each card contains multiple example elements which can be added to the machines as you like. You can add further elements and students should eventually also add their own. Some of the elements are designed to be performed by multiple students at once, in chorus or one after another.

Within each Drama Card set from Drama Trunk you will find prompts suitable for various levels (beginner to advanced) and age groups and I suggest having a quick flick through before the class and taking out more advanced or beginner prompts (depending on the class and year level). Most are suitable for all of the grade levels listed.
