Cinderella Around the World


Cinderella by Maxfield Parish

Did you know that "Cinderella" isn't only told in the United States?  Many countries around the world have stories that are very similar to Cinderella. The Egyptian Cinderella story was first told more than 2000 years ago!  We decided to investigate these stories of a poor girl who gets magical help and meets the love of her dreams.


In December, Mrs. Hickmott’s 3rd graders read many different Cinderella stories that you can find at your local library.

After discussing similarities and differences in plot, setting, and characters, the students teamed up to write scripts for their own versions of Cinderella. We hope you enjoy them, and invite you to write your own Cinderella story or play! Be sure to send us your creations, if you like.

Don't forget to check out the fun and games page for some cool Cinderella games.
