3. Script the poem.

After you have chosen a poem, divide it into speaking parts. This is called scripting.

At the Zoo

Let’s take a trip down to the zoo

to feed the goats, and rides trains, too!

Let’s ape around with chimpanzees

and bray along with old donkeys.

And then we’ll watch the dolphin show!

They speak and laugh like us, you know.

Lions and tigers and bears—hooray!
