Remembrance Day Drama Circle | Paper
This drama circle teaches students about Canada's involvement in World War One, World War Two, the Korean War and Afghanistan War. It teaches students about the sacrifices our Canadian soldiers have made to protect the rights and freedoms of Canadians. This is why Remembrance Day is so important.
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.
This engaging activity includes:
- 32 cards (each one can be a "part") in colour and ink-saving versions.
- blank cards so you can modify the set for your classroom.
- a teacher guide (so you can read through the whole circle).
- instructions for how to run a drama circle.
- discussion questions to reflect on the experience.
- a link to get a free drama circle to teach students how to complete a drama circle.
- links to Remembrance Day blog posts to help learn more.
This drama circle is designed to be done in a classroom setting, but it could be used as a presentation by a class for a school assembly in honour of Remembrance Day.
Ninja Note: As Remembrance Day is a Canadian observance, all spelling used in this package is Canadian.
This activity supports:
- any lesson about Remembrance Day.
Ninja Note: This resource requires downloading the PDF, printing the cards, and cutting them apart before beginning the activity.
