Abstract: The study conducted aimed at investigating and establishing whether an innovative teaching approach such as educational drama, can help students in primary school cultivate their critical thinking skills. There were 15 theatrical workshops designed, related to the culture and interests of the specific age group, which were based on the principles of educational drama. There were three stages for the experimental method used, the pre-research stage, the main research stage and the results extraction stage. Four hundred students from six different primary schools in Greece, between 8 and 10 years old, were randomly selected as the sample of this research. Subtraction, induction, observation, reliability, detection and troubleshooting were the five critical thinking skills under study. The anticipated result of the study stemmed from the data collected, both qualitative and quantitative and confirmed the main research hypothesis that educational drama, as an innovative method, can reinforce students' critical thinking skills in primary school.
