Celebrate Columbus Day with this humorous retelling of Columbus' voyage to the New World. Through this original Reader's Theater script, students will learn the truth behind Columbus' discovery. Included in this package is an original poem for whole group reading and a Reader's Theater script with ten speaking parts.
These scripts can be used for classroom read alouds, classroom performances, or can be easily adapted for a Columbus Day play on the stage.
Reader's Theater helps to develop fluency through repeated exposure to text, increase comprehension, integrate reading, writing, speaking, listening in an authentic context, engage students, increase reading motivation, create confidence and improve the self-image of students, provide a real purpose for reading, and provide opportunities for cooperative learning.
