Ancient Rome: The Empire, part I; 60 BC-81 AD

When?

We added events to our timeline.

Assassination of Julius Caesar
Octavian (Augustus) rules Roman Empire
Nero persecutes the Christians, Rome burns
Destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem

Mt. Vesuvius erupts destroying Pompeii and Herculaneum (79 AD)


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.

Julius Caesar
Cicero
Jesus Christ
Augustus (Jesus' birth)
Nero (Jesus' death)
12 Disciples
Titus

Where?

We added place names to our map.

Rhine River
Po River
Danube River
Tigris River
Euphrates River
Rhone River

What?

We learned about many aspects of the way Romans lived. We focused on engineering and building. We finished City: A Story of Roman Planning and Construction by David Macaulay.
We are working on making a model of a Roman city.
