We are learning about Ancient Rome, from its early days to the reign of Augustus Caesar. Some highlights include:

  • Geography of Rome: In their interactive notebooks, students will make a map to understand how geography contributed to Rome's growth 
  • Cross-curricular activity with science: analyzing Roman gods and names of planets from a historic and scientific perspective (i.e. Jupiter)
  • Puzzle analysis: students will analyze a 3D puzzle of a Roman warship to understand the how Roman naval power helped contribute to its empire spreading
