Product Description
Rocks and Minerals Game Show
science Readers Theater script with graphic organizers
By Carol Montgomery

WHO are the mystery guests and WHO are they related to–Ignee Us, Seddy Mentary, or Dr. Meta Morphic?  Rocks and Minerals Game Show will add a little spunk to your study of rocks and minerals.  Your students will love the hand signals for whole-class voting on each mystery guest.  And, they'll learn about specific rocks and minerals in the process.  Part 1 features Granite, Talc, and Quartz.  Part 2 features Obsidian, Gypsum, and Halite. Part 3 features Pumice, Marble, and Graphite. The whole set of five Readers Theater scripts includes two optional commercials. Audience participation creates full-class fun.

Here's what one teacher wrote me about "Rocks and Minerals Game Show":
After reading only the first page..... OH MY GOSH!! So excited! Creative and NOTHING out there like it that is FUN like this (that I have found anyway about this topic) and I've been doing this a LONG time. Super duper excited to read on!"

Later…

You are a complete ROCK STAR!! Amazing!…You are SOOOO good at what you do I just want the WORLD to know about you. Readers Theatre IS MISSING from almost every classroom (except us OLDIES), but I feel you could reach many many more if you put your wonderful work on TpT…you have NO IDEA how excited my class is going to be!…My nonEnglish Speaker LOVES anything similar to these!!

For YOUR students to enjoy "Rocks and Minerals Game Show," spread the scripts out over several days or compact them into one or two days. For compact unit studies, consider dividing your class into five groups. Let each group quietly practice their script like it's a secret.  After a few repeated readings let each group present their portion of the game show to the full class.  Of course, the listeners will be tuned in because they will be voting on WHO each mystery guest is related to–Ignee Us, Seddy Mentary, or Dr. Meta Morphic. One of the graphic organizers could be used as a voting ballot. Enjoy this Readers Theater geology collection in grades 3 through 8.
