This is a lesson plan that introduces students to how plays are produced and put together. I have a fantastic book listed in the bibliography that includes so much detail and samples that you and your students will love to look at and explore. That book also gives insight into a day in the life of a child performer on Broadway. Use this lesson plan to introduce plays/putting on plays, and use in conjunction with the Play Task/Role packet. This was such a fun activity that all of my students loved doing! We did this lesson to learn about putting on a play, then we would actually work on putting on a class play. It was amazing to see how excited and imaginative the students were with this!
