Students will explore the art form of tableau and then use this art form to dramatize both physical and chemical changes. Students will begin with a warm-up of drama exercises that will explore small group tableaux. Students will then work as a class to discuss and review the science terminology and characteristics that classify a physical change versus a chemical change. Small groups will each be given a task on an index card of a specific type of change (ie. melting chocolate). In small groups, students will determine whether the change is physical or chemical and then they will create a 2-part tableaux dramatizing the change. They will practice transitioning from the first part to the second part of the tableaux. Next, they will be asked to add dialogue to their tableaux that supports their argument of whether the change is physical or chemical. Small groups will share their tableaux with the class and a class reflection/discussion will take place.
