Come along on a journey to find Respect, Tolerance, Peace and Friendship while discovering our multi-colored world in an
original play I wrote and adapted from the book, The Land of Many Colors by Klamath County YMCA Family Preschool and Rita Pocock.
Perfect for Grades 1-3 class play, school-wide play, Character Education assembly, etc. Themes and Curriculum Tie-Ins:
Respect, Good Citizenship, Tolerance, Diversity, Peace, Character Education, Friendship .
Although listed for Grades 1-3, my sister's kindergarten class has done this play successfully a few times. She loves it!
If you need an adorable play, this is it! I've performed this with my first and second grader teams (with 125 kids on each one!) and it was a hit with staff, students, administrators, and parents. It really can be used for a single class or an entire grade level no matter how large.
The play, as written with intros and songs, lasts approximately 25-30 minutes. I love putting on plays, and me, oh my! So do my students! I've found that for those teachers who don't, it's often because they don't have the time to figure everything out on their own. Well, I've taken care of all of that for you!
