Middle school students love activities that get them out of their seats and allow them to interact with history. This lesson definitely does that. Included is an original 10-page play with 18 parts for students to play about how the Spanish conquered the Incas. Also included is a worksheet with short-answer questions, an idea for a writing piece and a vocabulary activity. My students liked it so much we did the play twice! Hopefully, yours will enjoy it as well.
If you like this play and teach U.S. history, check out the Acting History
series. I was inspired to send it to a publisher after positive comments on this website!
