PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Imagine saying the Pledge of Allegiance to a bright yellow flag featuring a coiled rattlesnake! The history of the flag of the United States is a compelling story, but historians are divided as to the facts. Did Betsy Ross really create the first flag? This play, which was originally published in my book, Read Aloud Plays: Symbols of America and later reprinted in the January 2002 issue of Scholastic's Storyworks magazine, encourages readers to become history sleuths. It includes the play script, a short reading supplement, a bubble quiz, a comprehension activity built around William Canby's 1870 treatise on the matter, answer keys, and extension activities. Suitable for reader's theater or full stage production, use it with students in grades 4 through 7 to build fluency and to satisfy a variety of Common Core standards in Literature and Informational Text. Thirteen pages and parts for eleven students. The original purchaser is licensed to print one class set per year for use in his or her classroom. Thanks!
