5 Short Plays for the Classroom With Background Information, Writing Prompts, and Creative Activities
By Jeff Catanese and Marci Appelbaum
Plays are the perfect way to show the “story” in history. The five original plays in this collection cover key topics in colonial American history including Jamestown, the first Thanksgiving, triangular trade, the Salem witch trials, and daily life in the French, Spanish, and English colonies. Each play is paired with creative cross-curricular activities, literature and Web links, and background information.
