Resource with three lesson plans and resources for KS3 Drama students. Moving as a Greek chorus and speaking as a Greek chorus. I recommend this for year 7 students as an introduction to Greek Theatre. These lessons would link nicely into exploring extracts from a playscript such as 'Antigone.' This might also be appropriate for y6 primary school students as part of a project on Ancient Greece.

    Dear miss_drama_queen, many thanks for your wonderful lesson plans! Not having taught Greek Theatre before, I was wondering whether you'd be able to share the "Riddle sheet" that you make reference to in your lesson plan #2. Or are these riddles directly taken from the story of Oedipus? Kind regards, Rita
