Ancient China Class Play/Assembly from Susan Russell on Teachers Pay Teachers
This Ancient China Class Play/Assembly is one of a *set written by me. It covers all the areas of work the children will have done in class (the beginnings of a great civilization, Confucius, the First Emperor, Life in Ancient China, the four great inventions,) – all delivered by the 12 animals of the Zodiac! Ideal for Grades 3 – 8 and parts for all abilities. This curriculum-based play is fun but informative – guaranteed to be enjoyed by children and adults alike! This play is typical of all my plays – “written by a teacher, for teachers” – easy to deliver, and fun to perform, with seating plan included. The only difference with this one is that I suggest the use of ancient Chinese music whereas in my other plays my suggestions are always of a rock n roll variety – which really lifts the performance.
