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 the Roman Army was so successful. They will read sources, watch an informative video, learn about the different battle formations and what was required of Roman soldiers.
They will be encouraged to enact the different battle formations, label the uniform of a Roman soldier and write a job application to become a soldier in the Roman Army.
This lesson is intended for KS2 but can easily be adapted to suit KS3.
