This Is an Awesome Learning Activity!
A Common Core aligned lesson plan and easy-to-understand instructions are included!
There are three Power Points and seven Word documents included for this activity.
This activity introduces students to Ancient Greek Theater and religion before reading Oedipus Rex.
The 18 slide PowerPoint includes instructions for five “Learning Stations” which will introduce the following topics:
The handouts for each learning station are provided and the answers are provided on the PowerPoint so a class discussion can be held.
I set up my learning stations by placing 5 desks together into a group. I place multiple copies of the same handout into a manila folder and set it on top of the middle desk numbered as either group 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5.
Students will spend ten minutes in each station completing the handouts.
I will set a stop watch and at the end of ten minutes students will be instructed to move to the next station.
After students complete all stations, we go over all answers as a class.
I have included a PowerPoint which will explain to students how Oedipus became King of Thebes and the riddle he had to answer to destroy the sphinx.
