Created for the classroom teacher and easy to produce!
These multicultural plays, (each 15 minutes in length) are appropriate for a public performance, however they were created with the classroom in mind. Students strengthen their study of other cultures, reading (fluency), speaking (diction) and listening skills (restating) while learning to work cooperatively. Each play has a special focus from a particular region of the world. These are super in an elementary gifted class or middle school social studies, language arts or drama class. This is a growing bundle, so check back later to see what else I have included.
Each product contains:
a play script tailored for the classroom (No royalties if presented for the public!)
stage directions to help with staging
stage properties list
sound effects list
music suggestions list
Links to materials and products: masks, body sox, rice hats, snowflakes, etc.
Film clip links
