1st Grade Drama Kits
Explore body language through observation, analysis and creative movement focusing on posture, facial expression, gesture, and the use of spatial relationship. Using a classic acting exercise for understanding non-verbal communication, students will practice sharing feelings and ideas using physical expression. In addition to introducing performance skills and drama conventions, introductory concepts of story can be included.
Weather Stories and Dramatic Earth Events
Explore types of weather, Tlingit weather vocabulary, natural weather and earth events, and appropriate behavioral responses through guided dramatic role-play. This lesson also introduces the basic concepts and skills of acting as a performing art. It can be used independently or as a compliment to a larger unit about weather, weather observations, or learning about how weather affects us.
