Transcript of Patricians Daily Life vs Plebeians Daily Life

Patricians Daily Life
On the other hand, Patricians didn't have to work as much as Plebeians did. Patricians didn't need to wake up early in the morning. They could enjoy a good breakfast and pray. Wealthy men satisfied their job by writing letters, meeting clients and businessmen at the forum. Wealthy women spend the day making themselves beautiful and planning dinner parties for when their husband returns.
A Good Education
Rich boys receive a large education, usually from a private tutor. They would focus on subjects a practical noble would know. Poetry, literature, history, geography, some mythology and important languages (Greek) were taught. Most young rich men would go on to careers in politics and government but they were also expected, from the family, to help continue the ancient priesthoods.
The foods plebeians and patricians ate were different from one another. Plebeians ate very simply foods because of the amount of money they had. Patricians would buy the most expensive food in order to show off at their parties. It was popular for Roman's to flavor their meals with sauces, spices, and herbs. Wine was a popular drink in Ancient Rome.
There was one big meal served everyday. Breakfast and lunch were rather light meals. After lunch, there would be a noon rest period called a siesta. If one were to go outside during siesta, the streets would be deserted! After siesta, everyone would return to work or school. At the end of the day all Roman's ate dinner. This was the biggest meal of the day.
Plebeians Education
In Ancient Rome the rich children went to private schools because there weren't any public schools.
Plebeians children were home schooled by their parents. Fathers were responsible for teaching their sons reading, writing, arithmetic, how to hunt, and how to work in the fields. Mothers would teach their daughters things that they needed to do in the home like how to cook, clean, and sew.
Plebeians Daily Live
Plebeians started their day early in the morning and either work on the farm or in the house all day long. After work and dinner, they would go to bed as quickly as possible because they have to wake up early in the morning the next day and because they wanted to save oil lamps.
Patricians Daily Life vs Plebeians Daily Life

By Lizbeth Cintron
There were two different classes in Ancient Rome-- Plebeians and Patricians. Plebeians were lower and middle classes while Patricians were upper class. The type of job a Roman did was based on which class they belonged to. Through out this project I am going to answer that following focusing question: How was daily life different for plebeians vs patricians in Ancient Rome?
Houses for patricians were different from plebeians. Most plebeians that lived in the city lived in an insula, which were three stories apartment but they could had been 7 stories high. The apartment were made of wood or brick of mud and had running water. They could not afford proper furniture, like chairs, beds and tables.
Patricians House
Many patricians own a houses in the city and a villa in the country, which was run by slaves.
They lived in a dome, which was a one story house, which was divided into two areas. The antica, which was at the front and the postica which was at the back. They had bedrooms, living rooms, dining rooms, garden, kitchen, bathroom, running water and one bedroom per family member .
Plebeians were the lower class, they were sometimes called plebs. Patricians were the upper class, they were wealthy.
90% of the population were plebeians and the rest were patricians.
