At its height, the Roman Empire ruled over much of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. In this lesson, students will learn about how Rome was formed. They will read about the story of Romulus and Remus and answer questions on what they have read.
They will also learn about the Roman Republic and Julius Caesar’s involvement in its fall. They will watch an informative video teaching them about the Republic and the formation of Rome’s government. Finally they will discuss the deeper-thinking questions posed in groups.
This lesson is intended for KS2 students but can be easily modified to suit KS3.
