This post continues the series covering our 2012 ACTFL presentation; you may want to read the Introduction and Part 1 first.

This set of activities focuses around the Roman house and household.

The first activity gives very novice students practice with using in plus the ablative and in plus the accusative while exploring the spaces within a typical Roman house. Later activities cast students as members of the household (both citizens and slaves) for practicing the use of vocatives and imperatives in the context of everyday activities.

Please note that this is not a complete, ready-to-use lesson plan, but rather an idea that you can build on and adapt. Please be sure to view the presenter notes for details.
