The Adventures of Tom Sawyer - Puppet Play

Middle schoolers create a puppet play of a scene from Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer.  In this literature lesson, students read through Tom Sawyer and discuss the characterization in the text. Then middle schoolers work in small groups to write a script from the text using correct punctuation of dialogue in the play. Students create puppets and a box theatre, and present their play to the class.
