Rome Unit Study
I am excited to have you join me for an adventure in Ancient Rome.This kit is based on 28 days or 7 weeks at 4 days per week.I have included daily reading and activity ideas. There also somesuggestions of resources from our subscriptions as well as somenovel/books that might be a great supplement. These are all just ideas.Pick and choose what would work best for you. Some items you will want topursue and some you will need to let go of in order to complete on time.
I would suggest that you consider using the atlas’ in the kit to do some
mapping. Tracing maps of Rome would be a great asset to your study.You may also want to consider doing a timeline as you go through thisstudy. There are many ways to do timelines. On your wall, in a binder, withindex cards or even as a scrapbook. This page will give you lots of timeline
ideas. I hope that you enjoy this study!
Each day there are a variety of resources and activities that you may want totake advantage of:1.
Greenleaf Guide to the Famous Men of Rome by Cyndy Shearer - forthis resource there are many questions as well as activities for each day - Iwill include them all, but please do not feel obligated to complete them all. Ihave highlighted some of the questions that I feel are the most important forthe study. You are free to use any or all of them within the study. Each dayalso has vocabulary - you could use the vocabulary words to review orally oryou could have your student
write out the ones that they don’t know with
meanings on index cards for review. The people and places part of thisguide could be used for timeline work or mapping work if you choose.At the end of the guide there are some excellent timeline resources for youthat you may want to take a look at.2.
