In this interesting, kid-friendly, but shocking lesson - students meet the CRAZY first five emperors of Rome!
In this lesson, students are split into small groups to read about one of the first five emperors of Rome. They then jigsaw to teach one another and complete their notes. As a whole class review, choose five students to play the parts of and act out the Julio-Claudian emperors. This often brings big belly laughs, as the students act out Caligula and Nero. Finally, have the students rank the emperors from first to worst. This final activity makes for an interesting and thought-provoking class discussion. ENJOY!
