Eat Like a Roman
Did you know the elite Ancient Romans ate while laying down? 6th-grade students in Mrs. Martin’s class are studying Ancient Rome. They recently learned how social class determined what one might eat and how their food was consumed. To fully understand this concept, students annotated articles on the topic with a partner while they laid on their left side. They were served mice (the gummy kind) and wine (grape juice) to round out the experience. It’s hard to believe that door mice were an actual delicacy for the Ancient Romans!
