Ancient Greek Ideas School Assembly Based on Unit 15 How do we use ancient Greek ideas today?

Scroll down to purchase script and performing rights certificate

Please note: The script is available in word document format on purchase of Performing Rights Certificate. The scripts remain free of performance rights for staging in the class room but as an assembly in front of a non-paying audience you need to buy a single Performance Rights Certificate to cover you for the play you are purchasing.

Cast of 30

Duration: 10 - 15 minutes reading. This does not include music suggestions

Bet you don't know where alpa should come? Why, before beta, giving us alphabet! That's just one neat trick the Ancient Greeks left us, along with the magnificent Olympic Games, fantastic columned buildings, and the written works of one of the greatest minds that ever enriched our planet. Yes, Homer (again)! Compare our lives with those of the Ancient Greeks - and work out for yourselves who were smarter!

This Assembly, based on Unit 15, looks at how Greek ties in with our language (alphabet and word make-up), life for Athenian and Spartan children, famous Greeks e.g. Pythagoras, Archimedes, Socrates, Plato etc, architecture (British Museum) and differences between Ancient and Modern Olympics.

The other Ancient Greek Assembly I have written is based on Unit 14 and covers different material - with a helping hand from the Grease cast and .. Homer!

(Also available for this unit, set of 5 guided reading play scripts plus quizzes - The Gods, The Olympics - Ancient and Modern, The Arts, War and Greek Theater - See Guided Reading Play Scripts Section)
