science reader's theater

I did this very thing with my fourth grade unit on the water cycle. I wrote it as if the water droplets were talking to each other and got in most of the vocabulary....transpiration, condensation, etc. I do not have a copy of it here at school, and now I teach Title I reading so I hope I saved a copy at home.

It wasn't hard....just personalize the idea somehow....characters talking about walking through a biome....have a dream about flying over the United States if studying regions. The kids liked reading it and I would like to think that it helped them come test time.

I will look hard at home to see if I can find it and post as an attachment.
