This activity is so much fun and great for interactive notebooks! This product includes an informative reading handout, a PowerPoint, 4 foldables, and a heading to go along with the foldables in an interactive notebook. Listed below is detailed information about each part of the product.
The informative reading handout is 2 pages and focuses on over 10 reasons why the Roman Empire fell into a decline. It is divided into 4 main sections:
1. Barbarian Invasions and Civil Wars
2. Political Corruption
3. Dwindling Economy
4. Decline in Morals and Values
A PowerPoint with 19 slides is also included. It presents the exact same information as the informative reading handout. Choose which format works best for your students.
Each foldable focuses on one of the main themes of the reading handout and Powerpoint: Barbarian Invasions, Political Corruption, Dwindling Economy, and Decline in Morals and Values. Each foldable opens up to 2 sections with a total of 4 activities. Students use problem-solving skills to find solutions to problems the Romans faced and relate the problems to issues we may experience in our world today. I find it beneficial to have my students work with a partner when completing these activities. An instruction sheet for folding the foldables is included. It’s very simple!
