An effective model is identified for thin perfectly plastic plates whose microstructure consists of the periodic assembling of two elastoplastic phases, as the periodicity parameter converges to zero. Assuming that the thickness of the plates and the periodicity of the microstructure are comparably small, a limiting description is obtained in the quasistatic regime via simultaneous homogenization and dimension reduction by means of evolutionary Γ-convergence, two-scale convergence, and periodic unfolding.
