Let’s imagine that Pompeii was rebuilt after the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. Some people are aware of the dangers of living in Pompeii and others are not. Create a flyer that outlines the realities of living in the shadow of Vesuvius and the precautions that the people must take.
I originally did this as a one day assignment. Students had the morning to do research and start their flyer. They had the rest of the afternoon to finish it off. The entire class was very proud of themselves when they saw what they accomplished in a limited amount of time.
