PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Remarkably simple lesson plan to use: No preliminary planning, no preliminary knowledge necessary for the social studies students.....just a fun one-period activity where you divide your class into any four ancient Roman cities (EX: Rome, Ravenna, Carthage, Cologne, etc) and turn them loose as a group to solve eleven very difficult language/math puzzles that all have an ancient Roman connection built into them. Answer key is provided of course.

This work is along the lines of my "Ancient Greece Group Activity Challenge" but I think an even stronger work.

Looking for more to help you teach about Ancient Rome? How about a bundled set of SIXTEEN varied, creative activities and printables? Some are multi-day tasks and some for only one period, but all were created to engage and teach your students about Ancient Rome. There are even three separate projects for your students included.

Ancient Rome: Topics, ideas, and Activities: 68 Pages

Another bestseller! Turn your class into an Ancient Roman courtroom in this great one-week classroom simulation while students practice public speaking and cooperative efforts, learn about justice and the law, and of course……learn about the ancient Romans!

That's why the word "Challenge" is in the title, and I think it is vital for kids to experience this kind of a challenge in their academic lives. Thank you for the feedback!

Would probably use with upper grades, not 6th.
On  April 27, 2013Mark Aaron answered:
I agree that this is a difficult set of questions. I tell my sixth graders that a score of 2-5 correct out of 12 is outstanding, and for that age level it is. Try setting the bar lower when introducing the activity and they won't be as frustrated by the difficulty.
