From my personal experience teaching elementary grades, there is never enough time for reading or science. This lesson integrates science content about two forces that shape the earth, earthquakes and volcanoes, into a way for students to practice fluency and reading skills through a newscast format. It not only has science vocabulary but also new everyday words for students to learn. This script can be used for a variety of purposes. There are also question sheets for discussion or pair work and a description with tips about how I used this in my classroom.
