Roman Shields - Ideas for Making

Powerpoint showing several photos of Roman shields that I made leading into an activity where children design their own Roman shield based on certain criteria. (UPDATE: Mac / ipad Keynote included.)

A rough weekly plan is also included

The children went on to design their own Roman Shields and then made then with cardboard and painted them.
Perfect for giving them ideas!

UPDATE: I have now included a completely unique animated Roman timeline I made that can be included in your own presentations as I have converted to movie format.

UPDATE: An excellent video included to do with tactics used in Roman times
