    I have found that with both 5th and 6th graders the more movement you can have the better. Some examples of things I have done:
    Re-enacted the events that led to the American Revolution. They write the scripts, and then act them out.
    Colonial Picnic where we have done a variety of craft and cooking activities the colonial people would have done.(with food at the end of course)
    Ancient Greek Olympics with groups representing the various city states.
    Role play a person from the Middle Ages or Renaissance period.
    Write their names in clay, using cuneiform or hieroglypics.
    They love doing dioramas with small reports to go along with them.
    Hope this helps.
