DRAMA

This activity is very important because you use different integrating abilities:

- Listening (you must listen to the drama)
- Speaking (you must talk about a topic)
- Reading (you must read the play because you have to learn, your character)

We work in a team; acquiring and using a new language. We can use authentic materials in the classroom.

Preparing the students:
• Divide the students into groups and ask them to decide which character each of them are going to play.
• Read the drama in their groups.
• Read the drama in their physical actions.
• Make decorations.
• Look for music.
• This drama was performance in February 25th for celebration of Andalusia’s day. Students 2nd ESO.

INTERACTION GAME
This game is fun and interesting way of helping children to work together. Improve skills and provides opportunities for social interaction.
Sport captain
One person from the group is asked to wait outside the room for a moment.
Another person is chosen as leader of the sports games and s/he must lead the group by ‘playing’ different sport movement which the group imitate (they must not look at, or indicate in any way, who is giving the lead).
The person outside the door is called in and they must guess which of the group members is Captain of the sport.
