Ancient Rome: Early Rome and the Monarchy

When?

We began a timeline for Ancient Roman history and looked at when important things happened.

Founding of Rome
Founding of the Republic

Who?

We read about who was important during this time. We read mainly from Famous Men of Rome. They made a notebook page, writing down what they had learned. They learned that early Roman history is a mixture of fact, myth and legend.

Etruscans
Romulus
Numa Pompilius
The Horatii and the Curiatii
The Tarquins
Junius Brutus

Where?

We added place names to our map.

Palatine Hill
Capitoline Hill
Circus Maximus
Rome
Ostia
Alba
Latium
Etruria
Campania
Tiber River
Mediterranean Sea
Black Sea
Caspian Sea
Baltic Sea
North Sea

What? 

We learned about many aspects of the way Romans lived. We focused on family life and children. We made an oil lamp.
