What The class had to do in drama was to perform in groups in front of the class but it wasn't easy because some people didn't hear the words to what some groups said. We got a situation card and then we had a line that we hadn't seen before that we had to pull out of our pocket during the improvisation and try make it seem part of the drama. It was a lot fun and very funny.
