Each Layers of Learning Unit is actually 4 units in 1! You'll get a history unit, a geography unit, a science unit, and an arts unit. Here's what you'll find in Unit 1-18:
History: Roman Republic
The Arts: Roman Art
Learn the legend of Romulus and Remus and the founding of Rome, make a fasces, and unlock Caesar’s secret code. Make your Asia map into a super size wall project and model the hills of the Yellow River in crispy rice treats. Observe transport in plants and make a model tree trunk. And learn about Roman art and architecture as you make mosaics and take a field trip to see Roman architecture near you.
In each unit you’ll find a recommended library list, important background information about each topic, lots of activities to choose from for kids of all ages, and sidebars with a bunch more ideas including Additional Layers, Fabulous Facts, On The Web, Writer’s Workshop, Famous Folks, and Teaching Tips. Printable maps and worksheets are included at the end of each unit and may be printed as often as needed for your family or class.
This unit can be used as a unit study, an idea book to supplement any curriculum, or as part of the Layers of Learning Program covering history, science, geography and art in a four year rotation.
