This resource is the perfect tool to integrate ELA and Social Studies skills. Students can use their letter writing skills from ELA and incorporate their SS content knowledge into their writing.
In this activity, students will choose one of Ancient Rome's famous inventions/advancements to research. Using their research they will write a thank you card to the Romans that includes details about the inventions, reasons why they are grateful for it, and connections to their lives today.
This is an awesome way to get students thinking about how the past influences our present... and how our decisions will influence the future!
This activity can be used as a wrap up to a lesson about Roman inventions, as an activity during station rotations, or even as a student-led introduction to the topic. A rubric is included and can be adapted as formative or summative assessment.
