SuperScience readers love a good "whodunnit".
Read-aloud plays are all the rage these days, and for good reason: They provide you with a way to get all of your students involved in a lesson; help you to see which students are struggling with reading; and make sure your students are all on task. But best of all, they're fun.
As in every issue of SuperScience, this one has a read-aloud play in a mystery format. Students can read the play from their desks, or dress up and act it out. Either way, your students are sure to have a blast--all while learning science! If your students stage a play, take photos and e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org. The SuperScience staff would love to see them!
Then, turn the page to learn about orangutans and the science behind circus stunts. Enjoy the issue.
