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.
