Roman Drama Roles- Whole Class Set

Roman Drama Roles- Whole Class Set

A class set of drama roles for acting out different scenarios. You could warm-up by playing Upstairs/Downstairs or use it at the end of a topic to show the day in the life of a Roman. I used these as a drama activity and took the children outside where they walked, talked and ate like their Roman. They even chose names!
