of the Barbarians
Learn about the everyday life and religion of the nomadic
peoples called barbarians and read about famous barbarians
from history. Then imagine that you have been hired to create
a theme restaurant called "Barbarians." With a small group
of classmates, draw up a plan for the restaurant covering
the staff's costuming, the menu, and the décor. Present your
plan to the class and take a vote on whether or not the students
would want to visit your establishment.
