Drama - 5th Grade

The drama, music, and art programs are integrated into the production of the combined 4th and 5th grade plays. Students delve into character and plot building through the use of the written word – a script written by the drama and music teachers. Students also create their own set designs with the guidance of the visual arts teacher.

Performance
  • Each combination classroom of 4th and 5th graders performs a play – an evening debut for families and the community, followed by an encore performance the next morning for the school.
Approaches to Learning
  • Theatre techniques
  • Stage presence
  • Vocal range
