An exercise to focus minds ready for a drama workshop.
Students walk around the space in a neutral way trying to visit every corner of the room.
Encourage students to forget about where they may have been and to empty their minds of thought to prepare themselves for Drama.
Teacher can call out:
- Red = Freeze
- Amber = Sit on the floor
- Green = Begin walking
Change the actions to explore particular gestures ready for the lesson.
Swap the colours and actions around e.g. Red = Go.
Call 'mini-roundabout' numbers, such as 3's, at which point everyone must get into a circle of 3's. This is a good starting point for group work.
