Overview:

This Latin activity offers 5 warm-up style discussion activities encouraging students to talk about Roman culture as it relates to food. Some of the discussion activities have links to photos of graffiti discovered on ancient ruins while others provide a textual reference of graffiti uncovered by archeologists. Students are asked to interact with the text/graffiti as they discuss the translations uncovered by archeologists and discuss how each relates to the food-related aspects of Roman life.
