Grades K-5 in-person Curiosity Quest assembly - 2022-2023

The in-person Curiosity Quest assembly is a free theatrical show for grades K-5. Presented by two professional actors in a lively and interactive format, the show educates about waste reduction, recycling, composting and climate connections. It reminds students how to keep waste out of the landfill and make choices that protect the land, oceans and atmosphere.

  • The assembly is available in two versions – primary and intermediate – with each running approximately 40 minutes.
  • Schools with more than 350 students receive two assemblies (we ask for a minimum of 75 students for one show).
  • The assembly set requires space—ideally a multi-purpose room, gym or cafeteria.
  • The assembly discussion guide is available in EnglishDownload PDF 700 K and SpanishDownload PDF 900 K. Use it to introduce concepts to your students before the assembly or review them after the assembly.

Note: If live in-person assemblies are not possible, due to safety precautions or restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, a virtual assembly will be offered via Zoom or Teams.
