Ages 7-13, 9 sessions, 109 pages

In this e-book lesson plan, students imagine what village life was like long ago by acting out short plays and participating in fun, village-themed drama activities! Students have a blast playing parts such as: the butcher; the mayor; the chimney sweep; the Pied Piper; rats; and more! They contemplate the meaning of what it means to be a member of a community and write their own village stories that have ‘teachable lessons.’ As written, the lesson plan covers nine sessions, but is packed with extra activities and can easily be expanded to fit a longer time frame or even a week-long camp.

Includes:

  • Main lesson plan (9 sessions)
  • Three Short Royalty-Free Plays for Ensemble Casts
  • “The Pied Piper,” “Stone Soup,” and “The Enormous Turnip”
  • Study guides for the plays
  • Production guides for the plays
  • Printable homework activities
  • Character worksheets
  • Three extra village-themed Print and Play games
  • And more!
