My friend the whale
A story about loneliness and friendship.
This is a unit of three lessons for sixth grade pupils.
The basic story is from the book Dramaworks (Owens & Barber, 1997).
Under the theme of friendship we practised free expression both spoken and written, in group and individually. Different aspects of drama were taken into consideration: feelings, empathy, surprise, imagination, listening, speaking, drawing, writing, respect towards one another, scenery of sounds; form, skills and frame of drama, tension, contrast, symbols, metaxis.
