What educators are saying

Purchased this last year then had to shorten my Greece unit so I had to cut some things out. I'm excited to use it again this year and actually take advantage of the full resource!


IF COMING UP WITH  an interesting way to teach your 6-10th graders about ancient history is difficult for you, look no further. This Greek Theater Power Point Introduction will give your students a basic understanding of the earliest theater. They’ll love this interactive power point lesson that shows what an ancient theater looked like. The kids may wonder who invented theater and why people put on plays or what the first play was like. This program will answer their questions.

SO MUCH of today’s vocabulary such as Theatron, Orchestra and more, have roots going back to ancient Greece. These terms are important when learning about theater.

THEY'LL KNOW what it was like to be an actor back then. It will peak their interest when they realize that there were no female actresses, and people wore masks that depicted their character.

THIS PROGRAM goes hand in hand with my Greek Theater Unit which is a project based activity where the kids work in collaborative groups to write and present plays in this ancient style.

⎈ I can remember sitting in history class, as a student, and being bored out of my mind.  The teacher just lectured and all I could do was look at the clock and wish that I was someplace else, ANYPLACE else! Needless to say I learned very little that year. I only began liking ancient history after I became a 6th grade teacher, years later, and vowed that I would make it come alive for my children. I didn't want them to go through what I did. That negative experience gave me the impetus to use PBL learning in most of my teaching and I’m so glad I did.
