This lesson introduces key vocabulary and it allows the students to participate and "act" out the life of a Roman gladiator using the web book, You Wouldn't Want to be a Roman Gladiator. A Sketch-to-stretch graphic organizer is used to assess the students reaction to the story.
This is a fun and engaging activity that has easy preparation.
An LCD projector is necessary, along with a computer with Internet access. The key vocabulary black line master is attached, as well as the Sketch-to-Stretch graphic organizer.
