Natural Disasters Assembly or Class Play

Natural Disasters Assembly or Class Play

Natural Disasters Assembly or Class Play This assembly focuses on: • Volcanoes & Earthquakes • Storms – cyclones (hurricanes and typhoons) • Tsunami • Tornadoes • Fire • Flooding • Drought Given the time scale, the information on each is far from comprehensive, both in terms of description and history; but the script aims to give an overall picture – and it is for the teacher to decide whether or not to add additional material. Duration: Reading time around 15 minutes. This does not include any of the music suggestions so overall time around 20 - 25 minutes. *To extend the assembly see notes at the end (additional text taken from Pompeii Up script). Further information could be added from the Volcanoes script (also available off www.plays-r-ussell.com) Please Note: in the case of the purchase of the Volcanoes script and the Pompeii Up script there are extracts from these two already within this Natural Disasters script – i.e. there is duplication. Cast Size 30 – easily adjustable up or down Sample Text: Narrator: A tsunami? Scientist 5: Yes. That’s the Japanese for ‘harbour wave’ – this name originating from the story of village fishermen sailing out to sea but on their return finding their whole village in ruins due to a giant wave. Scientist 6: Course, if you know it’s coming you stand some kind of a chance of getting to safety – like that school girl and her family did, in the upper storey of a nearby building. Scientist 7: This ten year old had learnt in geography about the sucking sound that can be heard just before the giant wave arrives. Narrator: Well! Three cheers for all geography teachers! Education does save lives! Scientist 5: So let us tell you about earthquakes which often cause these tsunamis! Narrator: Oh very well. But briefly please! Scientist 6: What is it with this narrator and time? Anyone would think we were running out of time? (All three scientists suddenly look worried) Scientists 5, 6 & 7: (Together) Are we? Running out of time? Is there something you are not telling us? Narrator: Well, I do have to keep this assembly to within a certain time limit! Scientists 5, 6 & 7: (Sighing heavily) Oh that’s a relief! We thought it might be something serious! Narrator: (Angrily) Er, this is serious, I’ll have you know! Now please, get on with it!
