The Dragon


This lesson is built around an imagined life cycle of a dragon, allowing the students to create drama through mime, improvisation and working with text.

The journey, from a small creature poking through the shell of its egg, through the first attempts to fly and finally becoming an aged and unpredictable beast in a cave, allows students to experiment with storytelling ideas as well as working in a small group.

Learning objective

  • To use the poem Shells and Scales to narrate the story of a dragon’s life cycle using a variety of dramatic story-telling skills in small groups
