Journey Through Drama takes young learners on a creative journey in a multicultural context! With more than 75 engaging activities, plays, games, pantomimes, stories, a puppet play and puzzles, this collection helps kids develop effective communication skills, self-confidence, awareness of themselves and others, and creative problem-solving strategies. With little to no preparation, classroom teachers, home school instructors or after-school providers can open the book to any page and immediately begin the fun!
