Piecing Together the Roman Empire: A Story of Discovery and Triumph.
Richmond, Julie A.; And Others
This story, written by middle school students and their teacher at Kingsbury School in Michigan, concerns the Ancient Roman Empire and is designed to be used to teach other middle school students. The story depicts a quest to reconstruct the Roman Empire from its beginnings as Ancient Italy, as a republic in the sixth century B.C., to the height of the Empire in 117 A.D., and to Byzantium in 330 A.D. A physical reconstruction takes place as students journey through time with imaginary peers, searching for pieces of the puzzle that will put together an ancient geographical map representing the Roman Empire. Students participate in activities and adventures with ancient figures such as Romulus and Remus, Hannibal, Julius Caesar, Philip of Macedon, and Constantine. A bibliography, a list of suggested activities, and the maps to be used with the story are included. (DB)
