This is a fun play that I created for my 6th grade students, to help them learn about the otherwise sometimes dry history of the Persian Wars, fought between the Greeks and the Persians in Ancient Times. There are 10 scenes, 9 pages of text, and 22 named characters. You can also split up roles for larger classes. We have performed this play every year for the past 5 years and the kids love it! Parts are a bit exaggerated, but they really do emege with a better understand of the wars than a simple textbook or lecture could give them.
