Appropriate for grades 2 – 8th. This lesson is an excellent “ice-breaker” for a new class with students who do not know one another. It is especially good for day one in a drama class as the students need to become a trusting team quickly, and they are also anxious for a script with memorized lines. So many students are not taught social conventions at home that this is new material and having a scripted way to meet new people puts everyone more at ease, especially the shyer students.
Objective: Students will memorize and “perform” a simple script while learning something about four classmates.
