Today’s at-home activity, Hot Seating, gets kids acting! This activity allows them to a) think from different perspectives and b) share their knowledge in a creative way. It is essentially an interview with a character, a famous person, or anyone else who the student might want to pretend to be.
Hot Seating is an activity that comes from the field of Creative Drama, where young people engage in theater activities to develop communication, awareness, empathy, problem-solving, a sense of self, and an understanding of theater. An important characteristic of creative drama is that it focuses on the experience and process as opposed to a final product or performance.
Click on the PDF linked below to see the directions for the activity – one set for caregivers/teachers and one set for kids who can read so they can do the activity independently.
