Hey, how do I download it?
This is a warmer, and there is nothing to download. It's just an idea for your lesson, not a worksheet.
After reading a story, have students create a “tableau” from that story. A tableau is a “living picture” and is silent. It was a popular party game in Victorian days. Students assign roles in groups, discuss what scene they want to create—the teacher might offer a list of suggestions—and then perform their tableau for their classmates, who will have to guess which scene from the text it is.
Through this exercise, students not only get valuable practice working and speaking in groups as they select and plan their tableaus, but they also develop their comprehension of the text in developing a tableau that their peers will recognize.
