Rivers & Water Class Assembly script **Fully editable**

Rivers & Water Class Assembly script **Fully editable**

This class assembly was written for Year 6 but could easily be used in lower years. The script takes around 20 minutes to perform and has enough parts for any sized group. There are lots of speaking roles that can be shared or added to and plenty of non-speaking parts as well. The first scene opens with people around the world discovering all the water on earth is gone. It leads to news reporters following the story around the world to various famous rivers (including Amazon, Nile, Ganges, Yangtze, Mississippi and Mekong). We hear about some of the current environmental issues at each site including pollution and the effect on ecosystems and food chains, urbanization and soil erosion, global warming and flooding, animal extinction, over population, deforestation, rain forest destruction, People finally come and demand their water back but the rivers ask for certain promises from the humans. The play offers suggestions for 'viewers' to help out our environment in general. There is a very effective demonstration of water waste from leaving taps on while brushing teeth that leaves the audience thinking about their actions. The document is written as an open and editable word document, so you can edit and adapt for your group. We hope you enjoy!
