Coronado Readers Theatre
Available (and free!) to 4th grade classes, this 'Coronado Readers Theatre' comes with a ranger who will guide students through a 50-minute lesson. As everyone's budgets have grown tighter and tighter, fewer schools are able to afford the bussing required for a trip to one of the national park sites. We hope the readers theatre will fill a need to connect students with the Coronado Expedition, and to get some of the experiences they would have had during a park field trip.
