See You Later, Gladiator!

Young historians take a look at the age of gladiators, and the cultural atmosphere present when they staged their epic battles. Pupils pretend to be reporters and write newspaper articles about one of the events they stage. Then, everyone writes a "Step Book" about a gladiator. These books describe how gladiators look, smell, feel, act, and eat. An inventive lesson for middle schoolers who are studying ancient cultures.
