We've bundled up our drama circles related to Canadian Social Studies and Canadian history lessons. These particular drama circles feature Canadian content in a Canadian context. Drama circles are a variation on a Readers' Theatre so you can teach history content in a new way.

Drama circles are similar to readers' theatre activities where students read small sections of text. They encourage listening and reading fluency. Best of all, they require only moments to prepare, but students are engaged and learning for an hour or more.

Each drama circle activity includes:

  • directions on how to run a drama circle.
  • a teacher quick guide.
  • a set of 40 cards (in colour and ink-saving versions).
  • a set of discussion questions to do after the drama activity.
  • a variety of reading difficulties and amounts of text on the cards so you can differentiate easily for your students.
  • a few blank cards if you need to change the language on a card.

This bundle includes:
