PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Part of my Ms. Bie Ografee's Reader's Theater Scripts, I really had fun developing this play about the Culper Spy Ring and specifically, Agent 355, one of the female member of the organization!

During the Revolutionary War, the Culper Spy Ring was organized to work to defeat the British. Agent 355 and other members of the spy organization were very important in the colonists being victorious in the War for Independence from England. Although Agent 355's real name remains a mystery, she was one of the women spies who showed that patriotism has no gender! Secret codes, invisible ink, LAUNDRY used to communicate messages, what spies did during the Revolutionary war, lots of information is weaved into Agent 355 being a guest on Ms. Bie Ografee's Talk Show with the studio audience asking her questions.
Great for study on the Revolutionary War, during Women's History Month or any time you are looking for a fun/informative play to use with your students!

Lots of extension activities, links, a Did You Know Fact section, comprehension questions and the key are also included.

George Washington asked for the spy ring to be organized and interestingly, it's secret group was only discovered in the 1930s, about 140 years after the American Revolutionary War by historians reviewing some of George Washington's private papers.

Other plays in the Ms. Bie Ografee’s Talk Show Series: Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, Sacagawea, Sequoia, Michelangelo, DaVinci, Tuskegee Airmen, Susan B. Anthony, Simon: Victim of the Black Death, McSean: a Leprechaun, Elizabeth Blackwell, A California Gold Rush Prospector. More to be added…

Additionally, I have biographical plays on many of the first ladies including: Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, Dolly Madison, Martha Washington, Mary Todd Lincoln, Abigail Adams, Eleanor Roosevelt, Lady Bird Johnson and others.
