Classroom Activities

Students will compare the relationship with the Patricians and the Plebians. 

Students will act out a classroom environment where we have the patricians in charge of the class and the plebians will be hard at work. This activity will encourage students to understand how the plebians worked so hard for the patricians. It’s just a fun activity.
