About This Product

If you find it challenging to come up with an engaging approach to teach your 6-10th graders about ancient history, then the "Greek Theater Power Point Introduction" is the perfect solution to provide them with a fundamental understanding of the earliest theater. This interactive power point lesson offers a captivating glimpse of what ancient theaters looked like, igniting curiosity among the students about the origins of theater, the first plays, and its inventors.

Moreover, exploring the roots of today's vocabulary, such as Theatron and Orchestra, deeply connected to ancient Greece, becomes essential when delving into the study of theater.

Through this program, your students will gain insight into the life of actors during that era, discovering intriguing aspects like the absence of female actresses and the use of masks to portray characters.

To complement this introduction, my Greek Theater Unit offers a project-based activity where students work collaboratively to write and present plays in the ancient style, fostering an immersive learning experience.

⎈ 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.
