The Punic Wars were a series of three wars fought between Rome and Carthage from 264 B.C.E. to 146 B.C.E. These wars had a huge impact on Rome's expansion and eventual control of the entire Mediterranean region.
In this activity students will work in groups to become an expert on one of the Punic Wars. They will read a summary of the war in their groups and answer the 5W and H questions that go along with the reading as well as the prediction question. Students will then need to create a poster about their war with a picture, map, and information that will be presented to the class.
