Recently, more emphasis has been placed on the category of education through drama and this has gradually progressed in diverse societies. Most of the age group attracted to this spectacle are children and adolescents. Considering the importance of issue in terms of education and building skills, examining this category in elementary school pupils can reveal significant points. This research, compiled via a descriptive and analytical method and based on quantitative data, follows a quasi-experimental methodology. The statistical population of 361 pupils was selected by staged random sampling using Morgan's table and Gresham and Elliott (1999) social skills questionnaire. Then they were replaced by simple random in two groups of 180 people in two experimental (non-government schools) and control (government schools) groups. The experimental group was trained in the art class (drama and performance) during four useful 45-minute sessions in one month, while the control group followed their daily schedule and did not receive any educational intervention. After the implementation of the training program, the questionnaire was again administered to both groups. Data analysis using covariance analysis revealed that participation in drama classes was significantly effective in improving pupils' educational progress. These results show that the demonstration had a positive and significant effect on social skills in the dimensions of cooperation, self-expression, restraint and empathy.
