ANCIENT HISTORY READERS THEATER GR 5-8 by Teacher Created Resources
Why use Readers' Theater in history classes? The format gives students a sense of involvement with the human dramas that make up history. Performers can relate to the tension of a young married couple escaping from slavery to freedom. They can feel the excitement as Archimedes "discovers" the displacement of water and experience tons of other adventures! Each of the15 scripts in each book is accompanied by background information, extension activities (including literature connections), and discussion questions.
