Our Planet Assembly/Class Play
Our Planet Assembly/Class Play looks at man’s impact on the environment – in the context of five different habitats: a pond, the rainforest, the Poles, the Desert and the Ocean – and what we can do to undo the harm done.
Poison in the pond, fire in the forest, no anti-freeze in the Arctic, oil pollution in the oceans and deserts – is there no end to man’s destruction of his environment? Can the human race be trained to look after the planet Earth? And what do all the animals in these diverse habitats have to say about it all? Read on and find out!
(Also available for this unit, set of 5 guided reading play scripts (Readers Theater) plus quizzes – on the five different habitats and what man can do to reverse the harmful effect he has had on the environment – see Guided Reading Play Scripts Section)
