Drama activities are fun! I try to incorporate drama into my teaching as much as possible. Many of my students get restless and would jump at the chance to get up and move! The process is all about expressing ideas using their bodies, their facial expressions, their voices, and maybe a few props. I have a large plastic bag of props I have gathered over the years. I call it my bag of tricks. It has odds and ends like hats, scarves, sticks, beach gear, an umbrella, masks, etc. We do a lot of improvising.
Drama circles require space, so it's best to do them outdoors.
