Holi - festival of colours - Festival of love - History - Story - Description + 2 Kid Reading Books

Holi - festival of colours - Festival of love - History - Story - Description + 2 Kid Reading Books

Holi is an Indian Spring Festival which is now celebrated around the world. My presentation comes complete with a story about why this festival is important (you can choose between a long or short version), a description of what happens and lots of colourful pictures of the event. In addition, you are able to read the lives of two Indian children as they get ready for Holi and what they do on the day. These could be printed off and read individually or they could be projected onto the interactive whiteboard and read as a class. The students could then think about how they would like to celebrate the coming of Spring and who knows, perhaps even have their own version of Holi in the classroom!

Third Culture Kid Short Film Video Lesson Plan

Third Culture Kid Short Film Video Lesson Plan

This is the presentation and video guide that I use along with the film "The Road Home" a short film about 3rd Culture Kids. The overall length of the video is 21 minutes. The lesson takes about 1 hour.This film is perfect for 4th-12th grade because it touches on an emotional topic in a way that kids can relate to and is school appropriate. The film is PG. My students enjoy the film and discussing how what people see us as, doesn't always equal who we feel we are. Furthermore, it opens the discussion of how do we move forward when people treat only as they see us?It's a great film.Film summary:"Growing up in England, ten-year old Pico never wanted to go to boarding school in the Himalayas, and despite the beauty there, he struggles to fit in. When he's bullied for insisting he's British in spite of his Indian heritage, he runs away, determined to return to his home in London. As he journeys through a country foreign to him, Pico encounters others who mistake him for an Indian boy, forcing him to face the painful truth that the world does not see him the way he sees himself."Included:1. Power Point with directions2. Student handout3. External Link to additional fitting resourceNOTE: You have to submit your email address to get the video for free, but it isn't on a full screen. It worked fine for my students. You can also buy the film as well.

India  Assembly

India Assembly

India AssemblyCast of 30 - easily adaptable up or downDuration - minimum 10 minutes reading time - this, as explained in Production Notes, could be increased to 30 minutes plusThe cast (should that be caste?!) of this Indian Assembly or Class Play is anything but equal with the appearance of three gods - two with 4 arms and the other with 4 heads - which one is the narrator supposed to address?Just one of the many problems facing our narrator - the main one being sheer volume of music, colour, joy and .. well everything that makes India such a vibrant country!Sample Text:Music 2(Shiva dances across ‘the stage’)(Narrator tries to stop him but is confused by the number of arms – four)Narrator: Er, em, excuse me … but who are you and what are you doing?Shiva: What am I doing? Isn’t it obvious? I’m dancing, of course!Narrator: Well, I think we can all see that. But who are you?Shiva: (Exploding) Who am I? Who am I?Narrator: Well, if you put it like that – yes, who are you?(Whole cast gasps in horror)(Child 7 goes over to Narrator)Child 7: (Aside) Surely you know who this is?Narrator: (Irritably) Well, do you really think I’d be asking if I did?Child 7: It’s Shiva – the Destroyer!(Narrator gasps)Narrator: Oh no! Not that god with the power of life and death?Child 7: That’s the one!Narrator: (To Shiva) Oh I am most dreadfully sorry! I had no idea that it was you, Shiva!Shiva: Oh I’ll forgive you! I guess I do look (waving arms around) pretty ‘armless!Narrator: Well, I wouldn’t say that! I mean, I think I counted … four arms?Shiva: Oh that’s nothing! When you compare it with number of names I have!Narrator: And they are? (Holds up fingers to start counting on) Now, let’s see. Starting with Shiva …Shiva: Er, I don’t think we have time to run through the others – there are over one thousand of them!This is one of several assemblies written by Sue Russell on different countries. Others include England, Scotland, Wales, Great Britain, Holland, Australia, France, Spain, Malta and India plus ‘Around the World in 20 Minutes’.Other Indian scripts:Divali and the Story of Rama & Sita (as a play within a play - a little like Midsummer Night’s Dream!)plus scripts on Gandhi and on the Indus Valley Civilisation.
