Story drama of Bereishet: Chapter 2

In order to engage with the second story of Creation (in Genesis, Chapter 2), the children played “story drama”. One child is the narrator, while the rest are actors. The narrator decides which characters each actor is (e.g. man, woman, animals). Then the narrator tells the second Creation story in his or her own words, while the children act out what they hear. The interjections of the actors reveal to us how they are internalizing the story. By acting out the story, children learn by physically experiencing the story themselves!
