Drama Virtual Field Trip – Types of Theatre – Remote or In-Person Lessons


Online Drama Lesson – Virtual Field Trip – Types of Theatre

This adorable virtual field trip introduces your class to the main types of theatre: play, improv, musical, opera, ballet, & mime. It works well as an online drama lesson for remote learning, but works just as well for in-person learning. This package is designed to be as flexible as possible so that it can be used as whole class instruction in person or remote, as well as individually in person or remote.

The teacher or students click on the buttons to navigate through the Powerpoint to read information about each of the 6 types of theatre & watch some short videos (YouTube links). There is an open-ended question for each type of theatre included in the file itself. Assign each student their own copy of the file and they will be able to answer the questions right in the Powerpoint if they switch to edit mode – otherwise they can use the printable version also included.

The Teacher Guide also contains:

  • a suggested 6-lesson progression
  • extra activity suggestions for each lesson
  • printable worksheet version of response questions
  • vocabulary worksheet
  • sample script handout
