Classroom Activities

There will be no zoom calls this week due to FSA testing.  No Edgenuity will be due this week.

Due to our busy testing schedule I wanted to give my students a more flexible assignment to work on. This week we will study “Ancient Roman Contributions” 

A list of Roman Contributions:

Roads- Aqueducts- Latin Language- 12 Month Calendar- Roman Numerals 

The assignment that I would like them to complete is a poster with information on the Roman contributions. They only need to select 3 contributions that interest them. Then they must do some research on what ways the Romans developed these contributions, how or why they were used and please include a detailed drawing. I have also attached a photo of an example students can use as a reference.

They may use credible websites for their research and include some evidence or cite their sources.

It will be due at the end of the week.
