World War One Assembly Play

World War One Assembly Play

This play has been written to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the outbreak of World War One in a way that is educational, entertaining and respectful to the sacrifice made by the combatants. The play is suitable for performance by children aged 10-11. The run-time for the performance is just under twenty minutes. The script includes recommendations for music and a song, suggestions for costumes, set arrangement and props required for each scene. There is a total of 24 roles; 3 roles are recommended for acting by girls, 3 roles are recommended for performance by boys. With doubling of roles as suggested, the play could be performed by 18 children. However, this number could easily be increased -or reduced- by two by adjusting the number of VOLUNTEERS. 15 pages including notes for staging, props, costumes and music suggestions.

Thailand

Thailand

Full Term study on Thailand. I developed this for my Stage 8 class as we are doing Thailand for the International Food Fair. I lived in Thailand for 2 years so most of the photos are mine and topics are based on my own experiences. My class really enjoyed this whole unit - they loved learning a bit of Thai and got really enthusiastic about the tasks! There are 9 topics in total and I have included worksheets/notes that cover everything on the Powerpoint so your students won’t need to write anything down. The Powerpoint is not heavy on text as I preferred to project images and diagrams and layer on detail in class discussion but there is more information on the worksheets. Most topics include a build in assessment task (Tasks on the PP and worksheets). The topics are: Introduction to Thailand Language and National Sport (Muay Thai) Festival and festival Culture Buddhism Climate and Weather Brief History of Modern Thailand Food Plants and Animals of Thailand End of Unit Quiz You can make it run longer or short depending on the ability of the class, how often you have Humanities and how much enrichment you add. For example, when we studied Muay Thai, we did a short Muay Thai class for fun. Feel free to email me at shellyschutte20@gmail.com if you want anymore information.
