Let Freedom Ring is a reader's theater script on the Declaration of Independence. Perfect for grades 3 through 8, it can be used with a small group or with the entire classroom.
Let Freedom Ring! shows a family who lives in Philadelphia during the American Revolution and follows two children who hear the Declaration of Independence read aloud to the colonists for the very first time. The children then volunteer to take a copy of the Declaration of Independence and deliver it to General George Washington where they read it aloud to his troops.
Historic characters mentioned in the script include Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams along with two famous African Americans of the era, Alice and James Forten, making this script a great resource for Black History Month as well.
This script also contains two patriotic songs for students to sing during the play. American history comes alive for your students as they witness this important moment in our nation.
