The Roman Banquet

In this Tripled Crossed activity, from the Centre for Science Education and supported by the Astra Zeneca Teaching Trust, students match various nutrient groups with the food groups and consider the nutritional benefits. They are then provided with food cards that cover the kinds of foods eaten in Roman times and asked to plan a day's diet for a Roman senator, soldier, laundry boy and child. The resource includes some information about how Roman people lived. The activities are followed by a self-assessment sheet. The resource is accompanied by teachers' guidance notes and teachers' tools comprising jigsaw sheets, answer sheets and food cards.
