This script on TRIANGLES involves students in reading and reviewing information about these 3-sided polygons. The script incorporates humor and contemporary language and references. It’s part of a collection in my book CURRICULUM-BASED READERS THEATRE SCRIPTS: MATH.
This script has special appeal for students with its game show theme. It is written for solo speakers with many parts for ALL so that teachers can use it with a whole class. Reading and rehearsing the script reinforces this important part of geometry and increases recognition of the different types of triangles while also increasing reading fluency and engaging students in a dramatic approach to learning facts. Students enjoy creating and performing gestures and sound effects where indicated in the stage directions. And—because it is a script—they do not mind reading and re-reading the information. This Curriculum-Based Readers Theatre script is one of many I have created with students and teachers across the United States.
