A readers theater activity to review Ancient River Valley civilizations. Students will take the role of Emperor Shang, the leader of the mysterious Ancient Indus, Emperor Khufu, King Hammurabi, and Sargon. The play is an excellent way to review key aspects of each civilization before a test. There are questions on the last page to hold students accountable and assess their understanding of the play. There are 11 different roles which help to increase student participation. MY students really enjoyed this activity, I hope yours do too!
