PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Challenge students to use their higher-level thinking to compare and contrast the strengths and weaknesses of the Roman Empire to the United States of America!

First, students take notes on Roman and American contributions and weaknesses, then compare/contrast the two, and finally observe the world around them, note-taking how Rome has influenced today.

The unit culminates with a group project to design (and possibly implement) a community service project intended to prevent America from falling like Rome by addressing a weakness that America shares with Rome.

Documents included in this unit:

-Suggested timeline of implementation including an organized chart explaining topic, materials, and student activities

-5 Worksheets (Roman Contributions, Roman Weaknesses, Roman & American Strength & Weaknesses Observation Chart, Weaknesses of Rome and America Venn Diagram, and Community Service Plan)

-3 PowerPoint presentations (Roman Contributions, Roman Weaknesses, & Community Service Project PowerPoint Template).
