Grade IX – Short skits-Choices


As part of their curriculum, the students of Grade IX of Orchids The International School (CBSE) – Masjid Bunder studied the poem ‘The Road Not Taken’ by ace poet Robert Frost. The poem explains beautifully the choices that are made throughout life and the repercussions of each choice. Based on the same theme, the students scripted and enacted plays. The focus of the activity was to understand the situations that lead to making a choice and the aftermath of each choice. Their plots varied from life elevating choices, to choices that are made unknowingly, to choices that are life threatening and to revisiting choices made in the past. Altogether, it is an experience worth sharing as the students thoroughly enjoyed themselves while learning important lessons of life.
