Farmyard Security is a reader’s theater script and guide and the play is appropriate for students reading between a third- and sixth-grade level. This fairy tale, with elements of Chicken Little, is set on a farm. The hen, who is woken up from her nap by a fallen apple, informs all the animals on the farm that “the sky is falling!” While informing all the animals, the hen and other farmyard friends are lured to “safety” in the wolf’s den. Thankfully, the farmer saves his precious animals from the wolf’s guile and the mystery of the falling sky is resolved.
