Want to supplement your science lessons using a science-rich reader’s theater for weathering, erosion, and deposition concepts? This Dude, Where’s My Rock? reader’s theater is an original science play I wrote for my class as an end of the year performance for parents and students. It can also be used to introduce or reinforce science information, to add variety to the reading block, or to help students practice reading fluency with repeated readings.
This science play is filled with solid scientific information about weathering, erosion, and deposition, but it’s also high interest and full of humor!
