Today’s activity is about you! Recipe for Me is a fun, thoughtful, and creative way to share who you are. This activity is shared in two parts. Part One is the brainstorm and writing half and Part Two is the movement and performance half. The directions for the activity are shared in two ways – for caregivers/teachers and for kids who can read so they can do the activity independently. This activity is recommended for students in second grade and above.
Recipe for Me is credited to Albany Park Theater Project in Chicago. You can see another description of the activity in the link below from the Drama-Based Instruction website created by Drama for Schools at The University of Texas at Austin.
