Product Description
Another Reader's Theater Script in my Ms. Bie Ografee series!
Learn about the Gold Rush and the '49ers.

Students will learn lots of information about the California Gold Rush with this play, A Visit with Murdoch McLeary, A Gold Prospector during the California Gold Rush.

There are 9 audience questioners supplying information and asking questions of Ms Bie Ografee's guest. There is a Did You Know? fun facts section about the time, comprehension questions, a teacher page with extension activities, additional links of interest and the key.

Great as an introduction to this time period on western expansion, California gold rush ,an enrichment or review activity or just as a fun/informative play to do with your students on a Friday or before a vacation.

Check out my other plays in the Ms. Bie Ografee’s Talk Show Series: Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, Sacagawea, Sequoia, Elizabeth Blackwell, Abraham Lincoln, Michelangelo, DaVinci, Tuskegee Airmen, Susan B. Anthony, William Shakespeare, Love Brewster(one of the Pilgrims on the Mayflower), interview with McSean, a leprechaun, interview with Sarsaparilla,a groundhog.More to be added…
