DRAMA ACTIVITIES AND CLASSROOM RESOURCES
This BLOG is the product of the "LET'S LEARN BY PLAYING" (LLP) project which is developing as a Grundtvig European Project since September 2008 by the patners of six institutions belonging to six different countries. The project started at a first contact seminar held in Riga (Latvia).
The main objective of the partnership is create a HANDBOOK or TEACHER MANUAL with drama activities and interactive games.
Here you have the results of our work, the activities, games, and new approaches into Foreign languages teaching-learning.

STRUCTURE OF THE GAME
Optional preparation: have players write five descriptive
adjectives about other people in the group. Encourage long
legged, short-sighted, hungry, rich, etc. Collect descriptions
and request more as you compile a list on the board. Then
explain that you are going to use these descriptions in Family
Portraits. Organise the players into groups of three or four.
Ask one group to create a "family portrait" based on a type of
family indicated by the leader. After three seconds the players
freeze in their portrait. Take a picture or pretend to. Quickly
move on to the next group and form another portrait. After
repeating several times get the whole group to call out the
family they’d like to see represented.
The Stupid Family. The Enormous Buttocks Family. The Angry
Family. The Elephant Family, etc.
