For many the ultimate goal for science learning is to create a learning environment in which students are not only active, deeply engaged participants but also where they have the potential to lead the activity. Role-play and drama have key roles to play in reaching this goal. Role-play tends to be the shorter form of this type of learning and more readily accessed in a classroom. Drama is more considered and formalized and requires more preparation.
