Visual, tactile props stimulate the eye and mind and result in creativity in the classroom. Lessons in which props are used are more memorable for the students.
Visual props are an essential item in a drama or language classroom. Items such as pictures, cereal box cartoon characters, magazine cut-outs, crafts, toys, add focal points to the lessons to stir imagination.
An extremely effective prop is fabric. The magic of colors and large arrays of textured textiles are very exciting. Teachers can use props not only in drama and language lessons but also in other classes such as geography and history. Textiles can brighten up a presentation, and make the subject matter more real in a student’s mind.
