The integration of creative drama into the teaching of radioactivity concepts in physics was analyzed. The study also determined the reaction teachers and students made towards creative drama activities in the teaching and learning of physics. One group was taught with creative drama and the other group with traditional lecture methods. The analysis showed that incorporation of creative drama helped in understanding difficult concepts in physics but requires more time to implement.
