"The Very First Family": A Musical Play by Philip Hall, Based on Stories by Rudyard Kipling. Cue Sheet for Teachers.
Designed to be used before and after attending a performance of the musical play "The Very First Family" (in which a Stone Age family and their neighbors bring three of Rudyard Kipling's stories to life), this cue sheet for teachers presents information about the performance and suggests classroom activities. The activities in the cue sheet involve young people in creative thinking, accommodating differing learning styles, and draw connections to various parts of the curriculum. The cue sheet discusses what the play is about, things to look for and listen for during the performance, biographical information on Rudyard Kipling, problems to solve, discussion questions, tips for being a good audience member, and a letter to parents about the performance. The cue sheet folds out into a large poster-sized play map (not included here because of size). (RS)
