This is a drama project that works really well in grade 9 - because it's a really simple topic that they can tell through tableau very easily.
It's around "THE 5 STAGES OF LIFE". Students get really creative with this topic! They could depict baby's first steps, graduation, marriage...the ideas are endless. (sometimes they even choose to depict birth lol)
So this outlines the expectations of what makes a good tableau, and breaks the project down into 3 days. (You may need to add more days, depending on your students of course).
A storyboard template is also included (which I make them hand in for marks).
NOTE - There's a Tableau handout and a rubric included in my shop as well, in case you need them.
