About This Product

Struggling to make ancient history pop for your 6-8 graders? Dive into this Greek Theater Unit. It's hands-on, collaborative, and a mix of fun and challenge. Picture your students getting all-in, having a blast, and learning together. That shared joy? Totally contagious.

By the end of this Greek Theater Unit, your students will get the lowdown on the origins of theater. They'll craft and perform plays, ancient Greek style. And trust me, they’ll love it. My 6th graders were all about it. They were super into learning and, honestly, their performances were a hit.

So, ditch the usual read-and-recite ancient history routine. Go for something that'll have them all hands on deck. Plus, each task comes with a solo written assignment, perfect if you’re looking for a double whammy – an Ancient History and Language Arts grade.

⎈ HERE'S THE SCOOP from the PBL gurus:⎈

  • PBL? A winning way to learn, giving students the skills they need to crush it in school and life.

  • With PBL, learning isn't a snoozefest. Students are in the game, not just watching from the sidelines.

  • PBL ties into real-world knowledge and skills – like problem-solving – that’s big in educational standards like Common Core.

  • Not only do students grasp content better with PBL, but it sticks around longer than traditional methods.

  • Teamwork makes the dream work, and PBL’s all about that collaboration.

⎈ 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.
