Healthy Living Assembly
This script was written as a complementary script to two others already written - Skeleton & Muscles Assembly and Teeth and Eating Assembly. These two were written for Years 3 & 4. This one for Years 5 & 6.
Subjects covered: recap on all major organs, importance of good diet and regular exercise. There is also mention of what is not good for you.
Mental health is mentioned at the end of this script - as it is stressed throughout that it's not just about 'looking good' - feeling good is equally important.
Cast of 30 - easily adaptable up or down
Duration: 10 minutes without any music; but lots of opportunity for expansion should a longer performance be required. This is explained in the Production Notes (namely, adding detail on 'organ functions' and different types of food); and the two scripts mentioned above could, with their purchase, also be used as 'add ons'.
Narrator: Ah yes! What makes a healthy body? Now, there’s a question!
Child 1: Good diet!
Child 2: Plenty of exercise!
Narrator: Sounds simple enough! (Bracing muscles) No wonder I feel so good!
(Enter Model, Athlete, Weight Trainer, Dancer and Walker – all ‘doing their thing’)
Narrator: Just look at those bodies – all so toned!
(Exit Model, Athlete, Weight Trainer, Dancer and Walker)
(Narrator looks startled)
Narrator: Oh wait a minute! I thought we were going to hear a bit more about that all-important exercise?
Doctor: We will! All in good time! But first we should look at what’s on the inside! It isn’t just about having perfect body shape, on the outside, you know!
Narrator: (Sheepishly) Oh I know that! Huh! I’m not one to be taken in by appearances!
Doctor: I’m glad to hear it because outer beauty is by no means the whole story. It’s about feeling good as well!
Brain: Oh, that’s way more important than anything else. If you don’t feel good, then forget it! Well, actually, on second thoughts, don’t do that because
Narrator: (Coughing) Ahem! Excuse me. I hate to interrupt you but .. you are?
Brain: Oh sorry! Did I not introduce myself? Well, you see there is a reason
Doctor: (Holding his hand up for Brain to stop) Oh dear. This is the first of the body’s internal organs
Brain: (Interrupting; and tapping head) Indeed! Starting from the top!
Narrator: (Irritably) Could you just tell us your name?
Brain: Tell you my name? Well, of course, my dear fellow. I’m Brain! I’m the one in charge!
Narrator: (Hurriedly) Oh I don’t think so! Not today, anyway!
