I really enjoyed this article because of how in depth it went into the dramatics that are involved and needed for children. Engaging students in movement and drama filled activities really get their minds thinking and the creative juices flowing. I think movement is awesome, but do agree that there also needs to be manipulative and hands-on activities for the children as well as opposed to just moving around or just handling an object. If it is possible to integrate both then that would be amazing. The article also spoke about the vibrations and waves that should be taught in this lesson, which was very helpful.

In this article the authors are describing how to use dramatics to explore science concepts. Students act out various science concepts through movement. This is a good way to explore science, but traditional activities using hands on experiments should also be a part of science.
