Directions for students to create a timeline based on Ancient Rome, emphasizing the changes from a monarchy to a republic to an empire. Includes a student handout (worksheet) for students to complete and a teacher answer key. The student handout has content about Ancient Rome included on it. The handout can be used without any preparation. This handout gives students directions to create and correctly label a timeline based on Ancient Rome from 800 BC to 1400 AD. Then students are asked questions based off of the information on the timeline. Therefore, students must interpret the information on the timeline. Included is a completed Ancient Rome timeline and answers to the interpretation questions. Expect to see more timelines from Erin Keith.
