This amazing lesson on Ancient Rome's emperors brings the good, bad, and downright crazy Roman Emperors to life in your classroom! It features 8 moving, blinking, smiling Roman Emperors that will look around your room and absolutely enthrall your students.

The download includes a PowerPoint, guided notes, graphic organizer, "flipped classroom" video, and a Google Slides version!

Each slide of the PowerPoint includes notes about the emperor as an embedded video of their marble bust plays to hold your students rapt attention. The slides cover the 5 Good Emperors:

  • Nerva
  • Trajan
  • Hadrian
  • Antoninus Pius
  • Marcus Aurelius

And 3 of the worst:

  • Caligula
  • Nero
  • Commodus

After analyzing the notes, student determine on which side of a graphic organizer the information should go. A guided notes version is also included if you want to keep things simple for your students. The videos on each slide play on a continuous loop as you talk about each Roman Emperor.

The flipped classroom video is a 30-minute fully narrated overview of the entire presentation with background on each of the emperors as well as placing them context during this period of Roman history. It's great to show your class, assign for homework, or post for absent students.

This can definitely be one of your students' most memorable lessons. The preview pictures definitely do not do it justice. Everything you need is included along with an easy to follow directions page, the PowerPoint, 8 videos, and graphic organizer!
