I created this play for my classroom to engage my students more as we learned about Pre-Columbian civilizations.
This play takes about 10-15 minutes to do and is meant as a supplement to your lesson.
For this play, I actually make a copy for each student. As the actors are doing the play, I have the other students use a highlighter and highlight any of the key words that we have already learned about the Anasazi, through our lesson, homework and discussion. This actually works very well, plus they have the play to use as a study aid later.
I love to get my students up and moving around the room. Plays and skits are one way to do this. I hope it works as well for as it does for me.
