Changes in Britain from Stone Age to the Iron Age – 5 Guided Reading Scripts (the places mentioned being in Britain)
These guided reading scripts were written to complement the two class plays I, Sue Russell, have written – entitled Changes in Britain from Stone Age to the Iron Age Class Play (for 7 – 9 year olds); and Stone Age to Iron Age Class Play (for 9 – 11 year olds).
Most of my scripts are on TeachersPayTeachers website but for a comprehensive coverage see www.plays-russell.com
