This Readers' Theatre is designed for an entire class participation. The class will go through the process of a bill from idea to law. After practicing the script multiple times everyone will have a clear idea of the process our lawmakers go through. Total time of the performance is under ten minutes. This is appropriate for 2nd through 6th grade. Add a few prompts and more practice and this could be a mini-play. This makes a rather complex process come to life for students.
The Lexile scored at 910, yet I have used in second grade with great success.
