What is Drama?
Pretending is a simple way to describe drama. This lesson is a beginning drama lesson to set up students powerfully going forward. The following drama games will help build community and an emotionally “safe” environment with your class. Similar to Tribes games, they will help students focus, cooperate and take risks. These games are suggestions and others may be found by searching theatre games.
Why Play Drama Games?
Learning through games is a fun way to teach children to listen and respond to rules and they keep each other accountable. As well, well chosen games teach the basics of skill development in focus, cooperation, collaboration, decision-making, creativity and other 21st century skills. Character education and citizenship skills are also developed through these learning games.
