What educators are saying

Students loved creating the set. Having specific expectations really helped students use their own creativity.
I used this resource to help make a curriculum for my "crew" portion of my middle school's drama club.

Part of a Bundle Do your students lesson need concrete ideas and not abstract? Let’s begin there then. OVER 350 SOLD! This two-day lesson on set design acquaints your students with the art form. Students learn a little bit about set design and draw a rendering of a fairy tale setting thus becoming set designers themselves. Lastly, they write a detailed description of it.

Note: This is part of my fairy set design unit, too. If you purchase the set design unit, you do not need to purchase this as well. You can find the whole unit at: Set Design with Fairy Tales Unit

This lesson was updated on December 27, 2022.

  • Rationale for teaching set design
  • Warm up
  • History of Set Design

Fun? You bet.

Note: A student who is absent for several days could study this unit on their own.

This is a time tested product from an award-winning veteran drama teacher of 38 years. Your students will finish this unit with a new appreciation of the art of set design.
