This is a play based on the Hans Christian Anderson story "The Emperor and the Nightingale" about an emperor who loves the song of a nightingale so much that he keeps it in a cage until he becomes more interested in a mechanical nightingale which looks far prettier.
As well as completing the activities, students can practice and present the play for parents. You may wish to have students practice their writing by writing invitations to parents, other classes and administration. Art can also be incorporated with this play by having students paint the background of the presentation.
This collection includes the script, a second copy of the script divided into 9 pages that can be used to make a story book, 9 pictures to accompany the story, two activities where students choose the correct word to complete a sentence, a set of flashcards for some of the vocabulary, three handouts of written questions for students to answer, and two game boards for playing 'Cinq' (Cinq: students choose and indicate five sentences, a reader calls out sentences in a random order until someone has all five of their chosen sentences read at which point they shout 'Cinq').
