Middle School Actors

I'm looking for a resource that will help me integrate more drama/acting in my classroom. Does anyone have a resource or book recommendation that has short/appropriate skits for middle school students?

10 Minute Comedy Plays for Middle School might be up your alley. The plays and monologues come with tips for beginners and the topics are meant to spark discussion in class with some worksheets and materials included. The reviews mark it as 9+ even though it's marketed for middle schoolers. You'll have to judge if the content is age-appropriate.

Short Scenes & Monologues for Middle School Actors seems to be more age-appropriate, but it doesn't have the extras.

Those are just a few potentials I found. I hope that helps!
