Quick Drama

Cooperation and dramatization based on three words

The activity is favourably performed in a school library/library. It can be carried out with all age groups. It is a fun activity that challenges creativity and cooperation.

The students are divided into groups of three to five persons. The groups each take a note that says what shelf in the library they should find, what book in the order of the shelf, a page, and a word. E.g. Shelf Kc, book 4 on the third row, page 56 in the book and the fourth word on line 7. The group will there find a word, and they repeat the activity twice until they have found three words. Based on their three words they will make a dramatization together. The dramatization will then be played in front of the others.

The purpose is to cooperate and be creative, while at the same time learning how to find things in the library.
