Products Included in This Bundle:


Looking for a way to incorporate reading and science to review physics concepts? This Force and Motion at the Amusement Park reader’s theater is an original science play I wrote for my class as an end of the year performance for parents and students, but it may also be used to reinforce science information, to add variety to the reading block, or to help students practice reading fluency with repeated readings.


This reader’s theater is filled with good scientific information about physics or force and motion concepts, but it’s also full of humor and fun!

Isaac Newton Information





Balanced Forces

Specifically, it includes:

11 Page Play with 30 parts (and suggestions for how to modify it to work with smaller groups)

11 Pages of Teacher Notes which describe simple costume suggestions, casting tips, props, suggested songs, and more.



Summary of the Play:

Four friends visit an amusement park and find out that it’s the perfect place to see physics concepts like force and motion in action while having fun. As they ride bumper cars, the freefall tower, a boat ride, a carousel, and a roller coaster, the things they’ve been learning in science class come to life. At the end of the play, a time machine piloted by physicist, Ron Mallett, brings Albert Einstein and Isaac Newton to the amusement park for a fun, surprise ending to this story.
