The Adventures of Tom Sawyer - Puppet Play

Students 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 students 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.
