This play can be used with or without the novel. Students can simply have fun performing this play by itself. It can also be used in conjunction with the novel. After each chapter, the students can read aloud the readers theater section that goes along with each chapter for better understanding of the novel. In addition, the teacher can also wait until the class has finished reading the novel, and then have the students perform the readers theater as a final book review before a final test. Finally, this play can also be used as a school production.
The script follows the events of the novel, but some events have been streamlined to flow better in play form. The character lines are similar to the novel, but not exact. It is against copyright laws to copy the exact lines from the novel. The meaning behind the lines, however, has been preserved.
The pages are printable, however, a Google doc link has also been provided for paperless copies. This is perfect for Chromebooks, ipads, desktops, laptops, cell phones, etc. Both versions are included with your purchase.
The game is a PowerPoint Jeopardy style game show. It could be played for fun, or for a test review. It could be played by a single child, or as a whole class review (small groups). The types of questions include characterization, events from the story, character roles, vocabulary, and potluck. The answers to all of the game questions are visible when the questions are clicked. All questions and answers can be edited in Power Point.
