The focus of this lesson plan is for students to gain an understanding of what life would have been like for a gladiator during the Roman period. Roman gladiator games were held to commemorate military victories, to celebrate important days and even to distract citizens from the political and economic problems of the time. Gladiators were considered celebrities who fought for the enjoyment of others.
