At the height of its power, the Roman Empire controlled territory that stretched from Spain to Asia. However, despite its fame, most students know comparatively little about the empire's democratic origins, or the civilizations displaced by its expanding military might.
This two-part worksheet provides an overview of early Roman history, from the Latins, to the Etruscans to the founding of the Republic. Part I contains two matching activities that center on important terms and concepts - what does republic mean? Who were Consuls, Plebeians and Patricians? Part II contains three short answer questions that are more focused on analysis and critical thinking - how did Italy's geography contribute to the rise of Rome and the 'Pax Romana?'
Perfect as an in-class activity, discussion-starter, review sheet or homework assignment!
