Drama is a commonly used activity included in lesson plans for Baha’i children’s classes. It is generally used in classes for children in intermediate-level classes (ages 7 and up); less structured activities (such as games) tend to suit younger children better. When used in a class setting, drama usually includes various exercises that help train children to express themselves with their voice, their faces and their bodies, through movement, acting and improvisation.

Stories are often used as starting points for drama. Care should be taken, of course, not to try portraying the Central Figures of the Faith (The Báb, Bahá’u’lláh, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Shoghi Effendi) during these exercises, out of respect for Them.
