The classroom is the domain of students, day in and day out, for many years. Teachers try their best to add visuals, posters, pictures, colored boxes and papers to brighten up the area.
Costumes are always considered part of the drama classroom, or Halloween. It is a fun idea, however, to plan some regular lessons using costumes. History, geography, language and social studies can include a day in which costumes are used. For presentations, review, games, and assignments, the visual effect of costumes create very memorable lessons. Students will always remember a lesson when Jenny became Margaret Thatcher, and Johnny was Abraham Lincoln, and the teacher dressed up as Churchill to do a review of the history of World War 2.
For young students and teenagers, having to do homework involving finding items to make a costume takes thought and planning and originality - and what more could a teacher want than that?
