Patriotic Scripts, Grades 3—5

Every nation needs to celebrate patriotism!  Foster patriotism in your students with patriotic Readers Theater.  Choose patriotic  Readers Theater scripts related to the United States or other nations from our growing buffet.  Since most of our paying members live in the U.S. we serve primarily U.S.-flavored scripts;  however, if you're a member of our Script Buffet Club you may suggest future script ideas related to other nations.

Click on a Readers Theater script title below to read an excerpt from the script and access the printable PDF (complete with annotated curriculum liks for easy lesson plans).

IMPORTANT:  Most of our scripts are available to our paying Script Buffet Club members only.  Each one pays a little and reaps a lot.  :)
