For this purpose, 12 female participants were chosen volunteerly. They gained basic knowledge and experience about creative drama by involving sample creative drama activities and lesson plans in science and mathematics. After that preservice elementary teachers prepared their own lesson plans on science and mathematics topics. These lesson plans were analysed based on the criteria for creative drama lesson plan preparation. Furthermore, the participants were interviewed in order to understand how they perceived the use of creative drama in science and mathematics classrooms. The results revealed that in spite of same lacking points, the prepared lesson plans were compatible to the stages and components of creative drama. (Contains 3 tables.)
