PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Do you want to add a little "flavor" to your summarizing unit? This is an engaging activity where your students work cooperatively to read an original readers' theater script. After they have finished reading, students identify the characters, setting, beginning/problem, middle/events, end/resolution, and theme on the sundae graphic organizer. Finally, students use their graphic organizer to write a complete summary of the readers' theater story!

The script contains 15 parts. Open the preview to see the first few pages of the script and most of the summarizing portion of the activity.
