"Blast Off!" is a fun, fast paced, reader's theater script. It was originally written for a group of third grade students who loved adventure stories, but has also been used successfully with strong readers in the second grade and students in grade four. "Blast Off!" has 5 main roles and one small role. Performance time: 5 minutes.
Three curious children unintentionally hijack their neighbor’s shiny flying machine. They fly halfway across the world to Antarctica, where they rescue an injured penguin.
ROLES: 2 Narrators and 4 characters (Stephen, Martina, Daniel, Mr. Harvey) Note: the role of Mr. Harvey is a small one.
Blast Off is not suitable for emerging readers. Please check out the many wonderful scripts on TPT written for students who are just starting to learn to read.
