Item description

This Middle School Readers’ Theater fun brainteaser mystery script will give students practice in reading, comprehension and writing, while having lots of chuckles. The Mystery of the Stolen Laptop readers’ theater script will entertain your grades 5-8 students and require them to perform inference tasks to solve clues. The cast list is intended for 8 readers but the number of readers can easily be contracted or expanded depending on how many groups you wish to have. This funny and engaging story is about the theft of a laptop at school and the detective work two characters use to track it down. The main character parts range in age from 10-14.

Matt fears he isn’t as speedy at working things out as his clever friend Sophie is, but he manages to wow her in this story- and discover where his laptop is!

To track down the missing laptop students will unscramble anagrams. They will also work out clues using a numbers-to-alphabet code. To end the activity, students have to discuss and write on six questions, complete a journal entry and also design a ‘Where’s Waldo?’ style drawing for a fellow student. This resource will delight both entire classes and small groups of early finishers.

Question sheets and answers are included.
