Students will learn about Cleopatra and the Roman Empire as they investigate the events that led to her death. Students will create a detective notebook and then search for clues scattered around the classroom. As they find more clues, the mystery surrounding Cleopatra’s death and her connection to the Roman Empire becomes clearer. They’ll wrap up the activity by writing a concluding detective report and completing an Exit Ticket.

Check this out! This resource can be taught alone or as an integrated theme across subjects! As you know, integration leads to greater student engagement, deeper understanding, and higher-order thinking skills for our students. However, coordinating integration across multiple subject areas can be quite an undertaking. That’s where Spiral Studies comes in. We’re a group of TpT teacher-authors and we’ve combined our expertise to make absolutely turn-key integrated units for you and/or your team. If you’d like to turn this lesson into an integrated unit we’d suggest working with your team (or independently if you teach multiple subject areas) and checking out the Spiral Studies Women in History MINI UNITS in each of our stores.

• Who Was Cleopatra? Lesson Plan

About the Integration Option
