Fun facts on the Ancient Romans

Fun facts on the Ancient Romans

This powerpoint presentation includes 20 fun, not very well-known facts on the Ancient Romans, on topics ranging from daily life to mythological tales. Perfect for starting off a lesson on Rome as a fun introduction to get the students’ interested. Each slide includes notes with further explanation, so that you as a teacher can introduce the fun fact with a bit more of a background story or answer students’ questions that may come up. These facts are carefully selected to trigger students’ curiosity, and will save you as a teacher lots of time in selecting and preparing! I start every Latin or history lesson with a fun fact like this, and my students love it.
