The original play, a comprehension activity, a set of select journal entries, and a key, all for around three bucks. Read it once or practice it daily with students in grades 4 through 7 (and potentially 3 - 8) to improve fluency, build comprehension, and introduce Lewis and Clark and the Corps of Discovery. "Bird Girl" tells Sacagawea's story in a riveting, memorable way. Historically accurate, carefully researched, and kid-friendly, it was originally published in the Nov./Dec. 2003 issue of Scholastic's Storyworks magazine. It's well-suited to reader's theater or full stage production and includes parts for seven to nine students, depending upon casting needs. Fully reproducible: the original purchaser is licensed to reproduce a class set every year. Thanks!
