Create your theatre stage using a large cereal box (for the stage and topper), plus a smaller box (for the curtains). The front of the box, plus the sides create the main part. Cut a square in the upper half, and use the backside to create a top piece. Decorate the top with markers. The smaller box can be used to make the curtains. Color the decals provided in this resource to finish it off.
Use the biography coloring pages in this activity (plus find TONS more in my store) to create your cast. Large popsicle craft sticks will provide the handle for each character. A suggested script is included. Students should use the short biography on their coloring page to help them fill out the script. Some answers can be factually based, others allow for creative thought. It is fun watching students form a dialogue between two historic characters that are from different eras!
Allow the characters to freely dialogue (this is always interesting to see what students already know/have learned about a historical figure) or have one character ask the other to answer the script’s questions. Another option would be to allow students to perform a monologue and have your class choose their favorite character to star on center stage!
