Top 10 Free Lesson Plans for Teachers #education #k12 - Learn about drama, theatre, acting, history, parts of speech and more
PARTS OF SPEECH! Mad-Scripts! Fill in the blank plays that are different every time you use them. Check them out
THEME UNIT! Use The Pint Sized Pirate and do a theme week in the classroom. This play fits well with many themes including Pirates, Oceans and the Environment.
RESEARCH PROJECT! Use Holka Polka and do a fairy tale research project. Explore all the fairy tales mentioned in Holka Polka and have students research the original Grimm, Mother Goose or Anderson stories (Big Bad Wolf, Cinderella, Humpty Dumpty, Pinocchio, etc.).
HISTORY! Use The Hysterical History of Troy and research the history behind the play. Older students can compare the play to Homer's Iliad and younger students can research Sparta, Troy and other Greek cultures.
CHARACTER ANALYSIS! Do a character analysis of a character from one of the plays. Go beyond the script and decide who the person, where they come from, how did they get where they are at the start of the play, what do they like/not like, and why are they the way they are.
