Three major streams are distinguishable from a simulation dividing it into gaming, computer simulation or role play, which is probably the drama game known to teachers and students all over the world. The figure theater also has subdivisions, statue - or puppet theater, for instance. Depending on the age, the students could choose from the latter in between shadow-, finger-, hand- and stick puppets, or even puppets on strings, like Spejbl and Hurvinek. [...]
