This is a great improv activity designed to awaken the imagination. Students use every-day objects as inspiration for monologues, skits or short plays. Included are: complete instructions; a list of 27 objects; and an example of a skit based on an invention prompt!
Inventions is a game that some teachers may have played before. On Drama Notebook, however, actual suggestions and example of how to use the prompt to create a short play are included. This is one of the things that sets Drama Notebook apart from other drama resources. Typically, there is a short description of how to play a game, but important details, such as the actual suggestions or examples are missing, leaving the instructor to either make his/her own list, or to brainstorm in the moment. On Drama Notebook, the prompts are provided for you, leaving you free to focus on paying attention to the progress of individuals or the group.
