Setting up a table as a restaurant was also a popular choice. The kids would practice writing when they took orders. They also liked to make their own menus.

Camping dramatic play- A great idea for bringing the outdoors in, especially during the winter months when camping is months away. Adds to the room as well making it feel more like home rather than a classroom. Did this set up with children in the gym for the day, they loved it!
have the student work together to pitch a tent in the classroom. afterward assign a process essay: "how to pitch a tent." leave the tent up for dramatic play- but put "campfire" on the floor with camp stools instead. Battery lanterns in the tent are a big hit too :)
