This script was written for 3 students. It was written to teach or reinforce a lesson about the Statue of Liberty. In the script, Sandra is going to go on a vacation to New York City and tells her friends she can’t wait to see the Statue of Liberty. Kerry is happy for her but doesn’t understand why the Statue of Liberty is all that cool or important. Sandra and Larry tell Kerry the history behind the statue as well as what some of the symbols are and what they mean. Kerry decides that someday they would like to see the statue as well. There is a short writing prompt at the end of the script.
I marked this as a 3rd grade script but there will be some words (especially names) that they will need help with. 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. 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 I my store name is Wonbyone. If you enjoy this script look for other historical ones at my site. I hope that your students enjoy this script as much as mine did. Let me know how things go!
