Do your primary school students love using drama to learn
Do you enjoy using drama as a teaching device to motivate students to participate? Would your students be interested in finding out who stole the number 5, who ate the slice of fruit cake, who turned up for the planet party at Earth's place, and how students working together saved a friend from being eaten by a huge monster.
If you want your classroom to come alive with smiles galore and action aplenty then try our modules. Students act a short play, about 8-10 minutes, to introduce the subject then move onto discussion activities. You don't need any drama or acting skills, just a sense of fun and a desire to try something different.
