Product Description
This lesson plan and activity has students examine primary and secondary source excerpts to determine causes of Rome's strength and also eventual fall (expansionism, trade systems, labor systems, and money systems). Included is a detailed lesson plan, document handouts, a graphic organizer chart for students, and a thorough answer key for teachers.

My students LOVE doing this activity, especially when they get to conduct their own economic analysis of Rome's problems - particularly students who aren't the "history type" really get into this lesson. The student-led analysis allows a deep conceptual understanding of the "domino effect" behind the fall of Rome, and sets students up nicely to write an excellent essay on this topic.


Makes a great companion to my lesson Decline of Rome: Diocletian and Constantine Attempt to Save the Empire
