Time Travelling in Ancient Egypt Guided Reading Scripts

Time Travelling in Ancient Egypt Guided Reading Scripts

Time Travelling in Ancient Egypt Guided Reading Scripts or Readers Theater This is the first of a series of ‘Time Travels’ – based on guided reading scripts which were written as supplementary classroom resources to Class Plays or Assemblies. Please note: This Time Travel Series only currently consists of the one product - on Ancient Egypt. I am really waiting to see if there is sufficient interest in this product in order to follow with the rest of the series. A group of Time Travelers has been added along with a few 'tweaks' to the original script (still available along with accompanying quizzes under Guided Reading - Ancient Egyptians Guided Reading Play Scripts.) Written in play format with 6 speakers to each of 5 ‘plays’ (Total number of speakers – 30) Each play is around 5 minutes reading time and comes with a quiz at the end Total time: around 35 – 40 minutes Unit 10The Ancient Egyptians Introduction to Ancient Egypt Guide plus five other Time Travelers – Adam, Mary, Peter, Susan and Phillip Guide: Well, what do you know? Here we are! Adam: But where is here? Guide: (Looking around) Why, here in Ancient Egypt of course! Play 2 Farmer's Year Speakers: Farmer 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 &6 Farmer 3: Though we did leave a lot behind for those archaeologists! Always digging things up and learning about how we lived. Farmer 4: Pots and pans, jewelry, weapons, (pause) .. and loo seats! Yes, the first known toilet seat in the world was dug up in the ancient Egyptian city of Akhenaten in 1350 B.C. I don't suppose anyone was still sitting on it! Play 3 Daily Life Speakers: Mother, Father, Daughter, Son, Teacher, Priest Son: Yes, they weren't just amazing buildings, for us living persons to stand and admire. Priest: No indeed. Far more importantly they were designed to send our pharaohs to join the gods in heaven. Daughter: Wasn't that called the after-life? Priest: Yes. A world free of low life. Son: Are you talking about those tomb robbers again? Priest: Yes. We tried to make things harder for them. And then someone thought of hidden tombs! Play 4 The After-life Speakers: Chief Priest, Embalmer, Mummy, Anubis, Osiris, Ammut Chief Priest: Ready to stuff? Embalmer: Yup! With straw, linen and sweet smelling herbs! Add a little salt Mummy (muttering): This one obviously thinks he's a celebrity chef! Chief Priest: No! A little more than just a pinch of salt! This natron needs to cover the body if it's going to dry out over the next 40 days! Play 5 The Gods Speakers: Amun, Nut, Thoth, Human, Hapi, Seth Hapi (snorting) Hmph! Hapi by name but not always by nature!

Victorian class assembly script (editable)

Victorian class assembly script (editable)

This script was written for a year 4 class, but could easily be adapted for other year groups. It covers topics from our term including healthy eating and balanced diets; inner forces and temptation; Victorian inventions, schools and life for rich vs poor. It is titled Oliver and Olivia and is based on Oliver Twist. It begins in the orphanage's food hall (discuss healthy eating). The 'twins' then leave for London and meet the pickpockets (discuss temptation of stealing). Then they meet a friendly lady who takes them in (discuss school and life of rich vs poor). It is a word document and fully editable. There are currently 17 speaking roles but this number can be increased by sharing lines (for example there are 4 pickpockets who each have 4 or 5 lines, but you could increase the pickpockets and decrease the number of lines). We used 2 songs in this play as well - Food Train and Pick a Pocket or Two. They are not included, but can easily be found online or changed/removed all together. Hope you class enjoys this as much as mine did!
