Characterisation Activities | Improv Cards
Characterisation Drama Lesson Activities with animal family improv cards. These cards have been created for use with various impro games and exercises but can be used with so many more. The characterisation lesson activities have been designed to explore elements of character, using animals as a starting prompt. Students will develop a character based on an animal and develop character movement, voice and perspective. If you are teaching characterisation - this is a perfect resource for a double lesson (or substitute class). You can also use the provided improv cards for spontaneous improvisation games where a prompt is needed or otherwise task players to come up with scenes or monologues based on the cards.

Use these fun 'animalistic' cards (which act as an improvisation scenario) with beginner improv classes or have the cards on hand for advanced activities. If you are teaching improv or characterisation to middle school or high school or doing improv with adults, these improvisation cards provide instant prompts and hours of fun!

YOU WILL LOVE THIS RESOURCE! Just print, laminate (optional) and cut out a set of versatile improvisation cards that you can use over and over again. The improvisation cards are suitable for so many fun improvisational theatre activities – including:

• Last minute improvisation games
• Improvisation warm ups
• Standalone Improvisation lesson plans for middle school and high school
• Add the improv activities to your improvisation unit plan
• Teaching improv to middle school, high school or adults
• Team building
