Use Roll Play to engage your students in really fun physical education without having to resort to hard to understand, rule laden games. The time length of the individual segments makes them perfectly adaptable to a daily fitness program. Here is how the series works.... A narrator narrates the stories and the Famous People Players act it out. As the puppets begin to tell a story over their signature black background, the Roll Play kids, against a wonderfully contrasting white background, mimic and become part of the same story. As we cut between the two groups we see the kids copying, responding to and creating their own version of the puppets movement and the story.

Although Roll Play is intended primarily as a tool for use in Phys. Ed. classes, there is a Language Arts component to it as well which could easily be incorporated into cross curricular activities.

 NOTE: Each 16 minute episode bundles 4 x 4 minute segments.
