The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of drama activities on the life skills of five-year-old children. Experimental design with pretest posttest control group was used in the study. The sample group of the study consisted of 32 children aged five years who were educated in a kindergarten in Istanbul province in the academic year of 2017-2018. In the study, “General Information Form” and “Preschool Life Skills Scale” were used as data collection tools. A total of 24 drama activities have been applied to the children in the experimental group for three times a week for eight weeks. After drama activities were completed, the same scale was applied as a post-test for the experimental and control group and four weeks later as a permanence test for the experimental group. As a result, drama activities have been found to be effective in supporting life skills.
