Sports Scripts, Grades 6—8+

Motivate your students with sports-themed Readers Theater.  Some of our Readers Theater scripts involve unique sports–never played before, but with flavors of football, soccer, plus sharks and minnows (e.g., Salamander Sly scripts).  Other scripts may include a more traditional sport like baseball.  Most of the scripts are for younger students, so check other levels for more options.

NOTE:  "Racer Rabbit's Marathon" is listed here because it's based on the familiar Aesop's Fable foot race "The Tortoise and the Hare"–with a twist!  You'll have to decide if it's too juvenile for your students.

If you don't see what you want you may suggest future ideas if you're a member of our Script Buffet Club.

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