Product Description
While the Greeks are often credited as the first to formally enjoy theatre performances, performing goes back to earlier times and cultures. In this unique mini-unit, the students will learn about prehistoric early man and what kind of theatre they would likely have performed. It incorporates written and student performance assignments, and is especially appropriate for middle school drama students.

Included are:
• 3 complete lesson plans
• 16 slide presentation (both MS Powerpoint and PDF formats)
• lecture notes (for use during presentation)
• "Early Man Theatre" student informational handout
• "Early Man Theatre" crossword puzzle (with and without word banks) and answer key
• "Early Man Theatre VS Modern Theatre" student worksheet
* .mp4 sound file of background night noises for use during skits

Although this mini-unit can stand very well on its own, the presentation "Why Theatre?", available at https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Why-Theatre-Presentation-for-DramaTheatreTheater-Classes-2245482, is great introduction to theatre history. "Why Theatre?" takes the students through the five main reasons theatre is done.

The study of early man culture is typically part of the 6th grade curriculum so older students often have some prior knowledge from which to draw, while younger students will get an excellent introduction.
