Product Description
This resource is a 5-Act, 25-role reader's theater script for American history from 1783-1807, including the presidencies of George Washington, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson. Reader's Theater is an engaging instructional strategy for middle grade students that allows them to act out various historical scenes. This resource is a great review activity and assessment strategy. The acts are as follows:

Act I: Creating a Constitution
Act II: Ending a Rebellion (The Whiskey Rebellion)
Act III: The Alien and Sedition Acts
Act IV: Purchasing a Territory (The Louisiana Purchase)
Act V: A Trade Embargo (The Embargo Act of 1807)

Each act includes three questions for the class to discuss. There is a ten-question multiple choice quiz for students at the conclusion of the play for an assessment. Lastly, there is an extension activity in which students will create their own script for the Stamp Act.

Answer key is provided for the quiz.
