If you are working on a fairy tale unit, or simply want to spice up your everyday character games and activities, here are 48 fairy tale characters set up on easy-to-use cards. Students LOVE drawing character suggestions from a hat. The cards can be used with dozens of drama activities and games. There are four suggestions included with the character cards.
Fairy Tale Character Pantomime
Have students draw a fairy tale character out of a hat and then give everyone a few minutes to practice doing something as that character. The goal is to make the actions clear enough that the audience would be able to guess which character they are portraying.
