Full class set for around $3! Includes play script, comprehension worksheet, and a leveled compare and contrast activity. Bring your Explorers unit to life with this original history play. Ponce de Leon is credited with discovering Florida, identifying the Gulf Stream, and is called "the Father of Puerto Rico," yet he's best known for his fabled search for "The Fountain of Youth." Carefully researched and kid-friendly, this classroom play script leads students to evaluate the motives of 15th and 16th Century explorers. What were the explorers really after? What happened to the native people? Did the Fountain of Youth really exist? Could it have saved Ponce de Leon's life? The play is well-suited to reader's theater or a dramatic stage production, and it includes parts for eight to fourteen students (and innumerable extras), depending upon your casting needs. Read it once or practice it daily with students in grades 4 through 7 to improve fluency, build comprehension, and engage learning. Fully reproducible: the original purchaser is licensed to reproduce one classroom set per year. Thanks!
