Interactive assignment where students will fill in guided notes about ancient Rome and draw creative pictures on a map to coordinate with the guided notes. The worksheet starts with the beginning of Rome as a small village on the Tiber River and ends with the extent of Augustus's empire. It cover such topics as:
- village on Tiber
- overthrowing the Etruscan king
- Punic Wars with Carthage
- Hannibal's use of elephants
- Rise of Julius Caesar's power
- Hadrian's Wall
- Spread of Rome into a great empire
- Use of galleys and legions
- Augustus's expansion of the empire
This lesson includes a worksheet, answer key, blank map, PowerPoint and a teacher's direction sheet. Everything is provided.
My student's love this lesson because they are not only learning about the history of ancient Rome, but also are having fun drawing pictures to go with it. The pictures are basic drawings that all students can create.
This is a great lesson to incorporate different learning styles. Mix things up and try something new.
