KS2 / KS3 Ancient Rome Timeline Display and Sorting Activity

A great classroom display and sorting activity that is perfect for introducing students to some of the key events of Ancient Rome. There are 25 posters or cards that include many of the key events and periods from the founding of Rome to the end of the empire.

The posters look great as a display in the classroom and the cards are a brilliant introduction to Ancient Rome. The displays and cards come both with dates and without dates, so the students can research the dates online before sorting the timeline. The cards look even better when laminated.
