In this lesson, students, through the analysis of various readings, will learn of the beginnings of the gladiatorial games in ancient Rome, the various types of gladiators, and the life of a gladiator. To help in their understanding, students will watch clips from Gladiator that depict various gladiatorial-slave scenes. At the end of this three-day lesson, students will realize that the life of the gladiator was harsh and cruel and that it was just not full of “games”.
