Based on Horrible Histories by Terry Deary, this skit (aka Reader's Theatre) has students pose as the Black Hand group and re-enact the events that took place on the fateful day the Archduke Ferdinand was assassinated sparking the Great War.
Dialogue is laced with puns and a bit of tongue in cheek humor to make this skit informative and entertaining. Short enough to be completed in one 30-40 minute class.
