This is an original Reader's Theater script, based on the organelles of the animal cell and their function. Your students will enjoy playing the parts of the living cell as they argue about who is the most important and learn how all the parts of the cell work together. This cross-curricular science script can be used in reading class as a non-fiction work, or in science while studying the cell.
Along with the script, name tags for each organelle are included with an icon chosen to help students understand the function of that organelle. This can be used with an entire class, or a small group.
