WHY DRAMA GAMES?
Drama games are a very popular and successful way to teach drama. They engage students of all ages, and can be adapted to any level of ability. The games are a fun way of developing acting skills, creative thinking and confidence, as well as teaching about the various elements of drama. Best of all, students seem to love watching and performing them.
The kit also explores creative fun activities such as drama make up and face painting; creating crazy costumes; making your own sound effects; sock puppets and finding music to set the mood.
