This group of scripts was written to support science standards and learning. They are for groups of 3 to 4 students. Science subjects covered erosion, weathering, living and nonliving things, the water cycle, the five animal kingdoms, force, tornado safety, and types of energy..
There are eight scripts. They usually sell for $2 but, in this packet, I am charging $10 instead of $16. Each reader's theater is sold singly but you can get all eight in this packet. This means you get three free when you buy them here. Plays are: Drinking Recycled Water aka The Water Cycle, I Think My TV Is Alive! What Makes Things Living or Nonliving, Pushing or Pulling - May the Forces be with You!, The Erosion Explosion, The Tomato Tornado, Weathering Man and Erosion Boy, Welcome to the Kingdoms of Life!, and Where Does Our Energy Come From? Each of the reader's theaters was designed as a small group reader's theater because I use them in class to practice fluency.
I use reader's theaters to encourage my students to practice fluency. It is a fun way to do something that they need. Most of my scripts are in black and white so they photo copy easily. This one does have a colored picture on the first page but the rest is black and white. The problem with many other reader's theaters is that students spend a lot of time waiting for their part. When you have a small group they get more practice in and less off task behaviors take place.
My name is Melanie Whitesides but my store name is Wonbyone and I hope that your students enjoy this script as much as mine did. Let me know how things go! If your students' reading levels are less than 4th grade they will need some extra practice for certain parts.
