Ancient Rome Lapbook Lessons
Here are a few sample lessons from the Ancient Rome Lapbook:
Legend of Rome
The god, Mars, had twin boys. Romulus and Remus were abandoned and raised bya wolf close to the river Tiber. They were later adopted by a shepherd and his wife. When the twins grew up, they decided to build a city where the shepherd had found them, but they could not decide who would be in charge of the city. Romulus killed Remus, and named the city Rome after himself.
History of Rome
The city of Rome was founded over 3,000 years ago by farmers and fishermen settling near the river Tiber. Salt marshes surrounded the villages. Since salt was a valuable resource, Romans traveled by river to trade the salt and other goods with neighboring villages. As the Romans became more powerful, they began to fight for surrounding land. Soon all of Italy was under Roman control. They went on to conquer most of western Europe, Britain, North Africa and the Middle East.
In the beginning, Rome was ruled by kings until King Tarquin was overthrown. They were so unhappy with him that they formed a republic, a
government where no one person has complete control. Patricians were rich citizens who owned land and had many slaves. They were also the leaders in government, the men of the Senate. The Senate gave advice to two consuls. New consuls were elected each year. Plebeians were the ordinary citizens, most of whom were also wealthy.
The Plebeians were those people who elected the consuls. Slaves were the largest part of the population. They had no rights and little education. As Rome gained more land, it was harder to govern as a Republic because there were too many disagreements within the government.
