Drama based on the story of George & the Dragon
Various props (see attached file)
Decide on a 'stage' area and gather the Cubs in front. Introduce the story, using the attached info sheet. Then the Leader reads the script and chooses 'actors' as he goes along. The cast can be adapted to different size packs by using more/less children for sound effects and animals/villagers. The drama is played out 'ad lib' by the cubs listening and reacting to the story. This is a very popular activity and usually leads to another read through. After the activity, discuss the moral of the story with the Cubs.
