Part of my Ms. Bie Ografee Talk Show Series: Students learn about George Washington Carve,the Wizard of Tuskegee, with this informative Reader's Theater Script. As a guest on Ms. Bie Ografee's Talk Show, Carver answers questions from the studio audience about his life. Carver found more than 300 uses for the peanut. He also found about 118 products that could be made from the sweet potato. For his many discoveries, Carver is also called the “Black Leonardo”(after Leonardo da Vinci). He was an early believer in recycling and believed in the importance of respecting nature.
The play has 11 audience questioners, a Did You Know? fact section, comprehension questions, a teacher page with links, key and several extension activities.
Check out my History of Peanuts! Everything has a history...even the peanut. Use this informative web quest to show your kids the history of the peanut!
March is National Peanut Month. My web quest," Learn about the Peanut!" is a fun/informative activity that helps develop skills such as reading for information and using research and computer skills. Comprehension questions, fun facts about the peanut and lots of extension activities (and the key) are included. A great activity for a Friday or when you need a substitute activity.
