PowerPoint Introduction to the Roman City of Pompeii:
This product gives a visual introduction into the Roman city Pompeii emphasizing aspects of daily life. The 30 PowerPoint slides cover all aspects of life in Pompeii, including the gladiatorial training school, religious institutions, dining practices, and the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 CE. The final slide includes three free response questions that you can use as a type of short answer quiz, or as prompts to encourage writing. The slides also contain detailed notes to help you in presenting, which can be used by showing the presentation in presenter mode or you can use the included document that contains the notes listed according to slide number. I have tried to focus the notes on helping you add depth to the discussion of Roman life in Pompeii. Most of the slides result from archaeological work that I did recently in Pompeii and so they represent a current glimpse of Pompeii, including some behinds the scenes shots of homes. I think you’ll find that the slides provide a visually rich and detailed introduction to life in a Roman city.
