Engage students in the daily life of Ancient Romans with this writing project! Students pretend they are a rich Roman teenager describing their daily life. Project comes with directions, rubric, pre-writing graphic organizer, an example, and a list of Roman names!
I use History Alive: The Ancient World Chapter 35 as a resource for my students.
