This resource is a 5-Act, 25-role reader's theater script for the Inca Empire! Reader's Theater is an engaging instructional strategy for middle grade students that allows them to act out various historical scenes. The acts are as follows:
Act I: Creating an Empire (Pachacuti)
Act II: Ruling the People (Government and Economy)
Act III: Farming the Land (Llamas and Terracing)
Act IV: The Invaders Arrive (Atahualpa and Francisco Pizarro)
Act V: Finding a Sacred Mountain (Machu Pichu)
Each act includes discussion questions. There is a quiz for students at the conclusion of the play, as well as an extension activity in which students will create their own script for modern-day Peru!
Answer key is provided for the quiz.
