Science Through Drama and Play – KS2 Science E-Book
Teachers need lively, stimulating lessons to promote thinking, interested pupils. Whilst the debate continues regarding the merits of various teaching styles and strategies, one constant is recognised by all teachers: children undoubtedly learn better if they find lessons enjoyable.
Drama and play are very powerful tools in the classroom. They provide pupils with an interactive experience in which they are required not only to participate, but also work together. The enjoyment of play is an element which even the most reluctant learners find hard to resist. Whilst drama and play can also be a means to building children’s self-confidence and developing emotional and social growth.
The activities in this 234 page E-Book are suitable for all pupil abilities and require very little teacher preparation. A list of necessary equipment is given for each activity, and suitable photocopiable resources are provided where appropriate.
