Wormy Note: The idea of projecting images and videos has been greatly expanded in this updated article.
Member Karen Carver originally posted this idea from public school materials she used.
Acting with overhead transparencies:
To present the story or as drama workshop create or copy teaching pictures on transparencies. I would "blank out" the biblical character(s)on the picture.
A child stands in the blank spot, becomes the character and can be interviewed about events, feelings etc. Also, the class could read the story from the Bible first then have multiple pictures for the children to take turns standing in place and deciding what the person might have been saying.
Seems to me this offers many ways to give children an opportunity to get into the story
Important to make a blank spot for the character so the picture isn't reflected on their face. A shepherd's staff coming out the nose will alter your planned outcome!
