Product Description
In this lesson, students learn about the various factors and theories that help explain why the Roman Empire declined and fell.

A brief powerpoint sets the lesson up and gives students their directions. For the activity, students are given a 2 page article that discusses 7 theories on why Rome declined. They then partner up to create a newspaper about the end of the Roman Empire. For the assignment, they write 1 editorial on what they believe the biggest problem facing Rome is, 1 editorial on which problem they believe requires the least attention, and then they a comic strip that explain 3 of the other theories for a comics page.

The 7 factors the article discusses are:

1. Inflation
2. Unemployment
3. Political Corruption
4. Decline in Morals and Values
5. Lead poisoning
6. Excessive Military Spending
7. Barbarian Invasions

Optionally, the remainder of the powerpoint goes over the theories briefly for the teacher to use to help discuss them with the class.
