For this activity my goal was to list the successes of Rome and explore why it declined. You will need to find a video that explains the decline of Rome. My school happens to have a Discovery Education account and I am using their video "Civilizations: Fall of Power" as a basis for the note taking portion. (Please note, the link to this video is not included).
The second part of the lesson involves the students taking their notes and evaluating the causes for the decline by filling in thought bubbles on paintings of Romans.

Hope this helps. This is my first post, so any constructive feedback would be appreciated.
