With the reform and innovation of modern education, children's education is experiencing significant changes. As a kind of integrated teaching method of art and education, educational drama is introduced in China, which has a positive impact on children’s language acquisition and is worthy of further exploration and practice. The research covers three aspects, namely content, method, and aesthetic education, and believes that organizing corresponding activities can stimulate children's curiosity and desire to explore and provide them with new opportunities for communication, interaction, and practical exploration. Further research puts forward several feasible and effective strategies, through organizing multiple activities to enhance children’s aesthetic education based on drama art and innovating multiple forms to promote their growth. This effectively reflects the positive role of educational drama on children’s language acquisition.
