Product Description
This set of 6 Guided Reading Play Scripts looks at man's impact on the environment - in the context of five different habitats: a pond, the rainforest, the poles, the desert and the ocean - and what we as the human race can do to undo the harm done.
Please note: Teaching time of 40 minutes is very approximate, depending on time spent on reading and answering quiz questions.

As these play scripts were originally written whilst I was in the UK, the 'campaigners' at the end are from the World Wide Fund for Nature, Greenpeace, the National Trust, and Woodland Trust; these can easily be replaced by World Wildlife Fund, Friends of the Earth, National Parks Conservation Association and Rainforest Alliance.
Written by Sue Russell, this is one of a set of Guided Reading Play Scripts written on the science curriculum for primary/elementary schools. (Also available: Rock n Roll Assembly on The study of Rocks, and The Planets Assembly - an alien's voyage through our solar system).
My Guided Reading Scripts are written to entertain and educate - they are based on the curriculum, according to the QCA documents, and cover all the major teaching points for each unit of work.
I have written plays for other subjects such as history, geography, PSHCE (Citizenship Skills) and one-offs like Valentines and St. Patrick's Day. These can all be viewed on my website www.plays-r-ussell.com which has a complete listing of my material under UK and USA catalogs.
Written for 6 groups of 6 children (with the exception of plays 2 and 6 which have 7 speakers), these come complete with quizzes and are a great in-classroom resource, for guided reading or 'mini performances'. Again, these can also be seen on my website www.plays-r-ussell.com
