Students read a short passage on Ancient Roman gladiator games, answer 7 questions, and create their own gladiatorial games. The handout includes specific prompts to help with creating their games, including the reason the games are being put on, the types of gladiators fighting, describing the play by play of a fight, and more! The answers are included where appropriate and this would be great for a sub!
Sample questions include:
--What did the purpose for the games evolve into?
--Why might the crowd have decided who survived or died? What purpose would that serve?
--Do you think there was any positive to being a gladiator? Why or why not?
