This script on BODIES OF WATER involves students in reading and reviewing information about bays, gulfs, channels, straits, and deltas. The script incorporates humor and contemporary language and references. It provides a way to address the Common Core State Standard requirement of reading across other disciplines.
This script is written for solo speakers with many parts for ALL so that teachers can use it with a whole class. Reading and rehearsing the script reinforces information and facts about the featured bodies of water while also increasing reading fluency and engaging students in a dramatic approach to learning facts. Students enjoy creating and performing gestures and sound effects where indicated in the stage directions. And—because it is a script—they do not mind reading and re-reading the information.
This Curriculum-Based Readers Theatre script is one of many I have created with students and teachers across the United States. Because there are so many additional bodies of water, you may want to use this script as a model for the writing of another script on other bodies of water.
Note: You may want to access the free copy of “Curriculum-Based Readers Theatre: A Guide to the Classroom Use of this Strategy” for some additional information. It’s available within my TPT store.
