Product Description

Rudyard Kipling's "Elephant's Child" adapted by long-time Scholastic & Storyworks playwright Mack Lewis. "How the Elephant Got Its Trunk" shows how Elephant's Child's insatiable curiosity gets in him in trouble with the Crocodile but ultimately leads to him getting a much more useful nose. The story is told in a unique, school-appropriate way (Kipling's original is much about spanking), it encourages students to experiment with various fun dialects (British, Hip-hop, 1920's mobster), and it sets an African vibe by using Swahili vocabulary. It includes parts for ten actors and includes two leveled versions, one for younger students (grades 3-5) and another for older students (grades 5-8). Each comes with a comprehension activity, key, teacher notes, and extension ideas. The original purchaser is licensed to download one complete set for use in his or her own classroom each year.
