Our Roman Empire lesson plan explores the rise and fall of the Roman Empire, including the most common historical events and significant contributions of its people. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner to explore a day’s schedule of boys and girls living in the Roman Empire. Students are also asked to match terms to their definitions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to describe and identify the Roman Empire, and its events and people during its period in history.
