Product Description
This lesson plan provides teachers with a creative way to teach what can be a dry topic. The Seneca Falls Convention is made much more fun by having students act out this important event. My students had bunches of fun acting this out in class!

Characters Include:

Leader of the Convention
Wendell Phillips - Abolitionist at the World Anti-Slavery Convention
Frederick Douglass - African American abolitionist who attended the Seneca Falls Convention
Elizabeth Cady Stanton - Leader of the Seneca Falls Convention
Henry Stanton - Husband of Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Lucretia Mott - Leader of the Seneca Falls Convention
James Mott - Husband of Lucretia Mott
Mary Ann McClintock - Attendee of the Seneca Falls Convention
Richard Hunt - Quaker Abolitionist
Jane Hunt - Quaker Abolitionist
Sojourner Truth - African American abolitionist
Susan B. Anthony - Women’s rights activist
Matilda Joslyn Gage - Women’s rights activist
All of the people at the Convention - the whole class

The play is based on the basic facts of the case, although I only relied on some dialogue. I've added in some fun little jokes that I know your students will enjoy (as I've been teaching these grades for a long time, I know what students will find funny). My students and I had bunches of fun acting this out in class.

This lesson plan is linked with the NYS Social Studies standards, however, I'm sure you could add your own. It includes a 1-page lesson plan, a 4-page script, and a short exit ticket to check for understanding.

The zip file included a PDF version, word document, and a google docs link for easy editing.
