PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This whimsical reader’s theater teaches students about heat energy in a fun way. It can be used to introduce a unit, or reinforce concepts about heat energy. The story reinforces the concepts of conduction, convection, and radiation. This play also introduces conductors and insulators of heat energy. The reader’s theater play format allows many students to participate, and it reinforces reading and speaking skills as they learn about heat energy.

The story takes place at a camp for kids called Camp Conifer Forest (fictional name). There are eleven characters and five narrators in the story (16 speaking parts) in the reader's theater. Different types of food interact with each other as they learn about heat energy. The main characters in the play are eggs, slices of bread, ears of corn, and marshmallows.

I've added humor throughout the reader's theater, so I hope your students laugh as they learn about heat energy. You could read the play in one sitting, or divide it up into sections, having the students make predictions and a discuss the heat energy transformations embedded in each scene of the play.

I have included a heat energy wordsearch activity for your students to do after they have completed the play. It contains the key heat energy related vocabulary, plus the names of the main characters in the play.

This product is part of my Heat Energy Activities Bundle which includes a 26 slide PowerPoint lesson with worksheet, 40 heat energy task cards, and a 10 page heat energy reader’s theater.
