Enrich your Black History Month activities with this compelling play about Jackie Robinson. Over my twenty years of using drama in the classroom, kids say this is one of their favorites to enact. This original script recounts the events surrounding Jackie’s breaking of the color barrier through the narration of the Hot Dog Man and the Peanut Vendor at an “actual” ballgame today. Historical photos and comprehension questions are embedded in the script, which was originally published in Scholastic’s Storyworks magazine. Six pages, parts for from 7 to 13 actors, and suitable for reader’s theater or stage performance. Includes comprehension activity, teacher notes, and keys. Fully reproducible: the original purchaser is licensed to reproduce a full classroom set each and every year.
