United We Rise is an original Reader's Theater play about the Constitutional Convention. There are approximately 12 characters in the play including George Washington, Patrick Henry and Ben Franklin. There are also numerous narrator parts. The play takes between 20 and 30 minutes to perform. I've used it with 4th and 5th grade students. It is very engaging. I would typically divide the class into two casts so that every student could have a substantial part. I recommend performing the play after your students have studied the Constitutional Convention so that they have some knowledge of the content.
