Summary:
One thousand years of Roman history in 30 minutes? A tall order, but these programs deliver. Start with the empire, then hold court with the republic, and end with a journey through the Roman legacy. Daily Life -- When in Rome, what did the Romans do? Students will discover the daily life of Roman citizens at the height of the empire. What clothes did they wear? What did they eat? What games did the children play? Inventions -- The legacy of Rome is set in stone (or rather concrete). Show your students how Romans discovered this sturdy new construction material, allowing them to build lasting superstructures such as the aqueducts and Colosseum. Government -- Send your students back in time to the Roman republic, where they'll get the foundation for understanding modern democracy. The path leads students through the census, the senate, and the principle of representative government.

Only available in the US.
