Teach children English with “Character Walks” Drama Game


Teach children English with “Character Walks” Drama Game

This simple drama game (ages 6+) can be used for practicing questions and reviewing vocabulary in the English language classroom

It also encourages children to develop their imaginations and boost their self-confidence by play-acting in front of an audience. You’ll need a selection of character cards for this activity for example ballerina, cowboy, queen, robot, monster, pirate, astronaut, clown, bear, monkey, wolf, mouse, etc. Ask a child to cross the circle and walk as their character and have the rest of the group guess what character they are playing by asking “Are you a cowboy?”, “Are you an astronaut?”

You can also extend the activity by asking students to do different actions for example: get dressed, eat breakfast, shake hands with someone, dance, etc…

A fun game that helps children learn English- theatrically!

Hope your students enjoy it. Be theatrical! Miranda
