This is a visually-engaging lesson on the Fall of Rome and the end of the Roman Empire. It includes background on the reasons for Rome's decline, the last emperor that tried to save the empire, and the Barbarian groups that finally sacked Rome.

The PowerPoint presentation features slides with great pictures, maps, and graphics to engage your students and keep them focused on your lesson. All of the notes are easy to follow and understand. Topics covered include:

  • The Pax Romana
  • Emperor Diocletian's reforms
  • The division of the Roman Empire
  • The Edict of Milan
  • Emperor Constantine and the founding of Constantinople
  • Barbarian invasions
  • The Huns, Visigoths, & Vandals
  • Social, political, economic, & military causes for Rome's fall
  • And more!

Also included with the download are editable guided notes worksheets, a Google Slides version, and a flipped classroom video of the presentation! The video is a fully-narrated overview and great for flipping your class, sharing with absent students, or prepping for your lesson.
