“Kids at home will LOVE to act this out. Fun. Entertaining.” A. L., – TpT customer

“This skit would work well with a unit on reptiles. It helps students explore their own reactions to creepy, crawly things and put it all into perspective. Students thrive with dramatic play and this one will lead to other explorations of improvisation and acting around other fears we have and how to confront them creatively.” – TpT customer
