Lesson 2: The Spread of the Roman Empire
This week’s history learning is very closely linked to that of last week when learning about the invasions. Use the PowerPoint to point out the key on the maps.Move through the slides one at a time and ask your child what they can see happening over time. Discuss the questions on each slide about the spread of the Roman empire. This week’s task is to create a poster or timeline showing the spread of the Roman empire from 800 BC to AD 305 using differentiated Spread of the Roman Empire Activity Sheets, Roman Empire Maps and maps or atlases to help them. To end the lesson, ask your child to write the most interesting fact that they have learned in this lesson in an email and send to their class teachers.
