One of the difficulties of putting on a class play is that all children want to be the hero, the princess or the dragon. It can also be time-consuming to select a play of the right length and level. In this project, children decide on the characters and everyone creates the story for the play.
Choosing characters to play
The first step is to explain that you are all going to create a play together and that you want the children to think of characters or objects that they would like to be. Give them some examples such as animals, fantasy creatures, traffic, trees, plants, buildings, signs, furniture or specific items such as a clock or a saucepan.
