A science fair project goes terribly wrong and shrinks six siblings to bug size. Will they find the potion in time and return to normal size, or will they be eaten by predators in the wild backyard? Play a part in this script that brings plant and animal survival concepts to life and builds content-area literacy in life science!

This cross-curricular script includes six roles that are written at varying reading levels, supporting differentiation and English language learner strategies. Teachers can implement these strategies to assign roles to students based on their individual reading levels. All students will gain confidence and feel successful while building fluency.

Through performing this story together, students will practice valuable skills like interacting cooperatively, reading aloud, and using expressive voices and gestures. All the features in this leveled script make it a great cross-curricular resource for the classroom.
