The following unit of work is based on statutory requirements found in the
science curriculum for Years 3 and 4. The requirements lend themselves to
interactive drama work that will reinforce important concepts about digestion,
nutrition and how the human body moves. Below you will find four lesson plans
that detail opportunities for class, group, paired and individual movement work.
Guidance is also given as to how these activities could be useful for assessment
purposes. A large space such as the hall would be the most suitable space for
activities, but adaptations could be made for a classroom with desks and chairs
pushed to the side. The unit of work was published in Teaching Drama magazine, Autumn 1, 2016/2017.
