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.

Mythological Creatures

Mythological Creatures

This lesson was aimed at year 9 but could easily be used for younger years. The lesson involves group work and introduces pupils to a wide range of mythological creatures from Classical myth to Harry Potter. They learn what stories the creatures come from, why they are appealing and why they are still used today in fiction and films. This lesson can be used as part of project work or even something more creative such as designing a film poster.

Harry Potter characters and their links to classical (Roman & Greek) mythology

Harry Potter characters and their links to classical (Roman & Greek) mythology

Did you know that most of the names of characters and magical creatures in the Harry Potter series have roots in classical mythology and Latin and/or Ancient Greek? Do your students love Harry Potter? This is a ready to use, editable Powerpoint presentation with slides of 24 different characters and creatures from the Harry Potter series, where possible with images from the movie. In the notes for each slide you will find the description of that slide: the connection between that specific Harry Potter character and Latin or Ancient Greek language and/or mythology. Let the students recognise the characters and teach them about the links with the classics, to let them discover once again that the classics really are all around us, if only we learn to see them!

Ancient Civilizations Inventors Extraordinaire IB PYP Unit of Inquiry

Ancient Civilizations Inventors Extraordinaire IB PYP Unit of Inquiry

Take the children back in time. Be the Miss Frizz of your classroom with this complete IB PYP unit of inquiry. Where We Are in Place and Time: Ancient Civilizations contributed to today’s society. This is one of my favourite social studies units of inquiry. By delving back in time, thousands and thousands of years, the children can explore the concept of time and exactly how life was like back in time, how the ancient inventions brought change to society and how they have impacted our life today. I have taught this unit of inquiry for 5 years, with both 3rd grade and 5th grade. Each time, I find that it is one of my favourite. There is so much to explore. With over 100 pages of interactive, hands on , engaging, inquiry based activities, this transdisciplinary unit will take you through math, science, geography, reading for information and, of course, history. As we travelled through time with our toilet paper timeline, we explored the cradle of civilization: The Mesopotamians. From there, we travelled into North Africa to visit the Ancient Egyptians. The inquiries came flooding fast and furiously as we learned more and more about how people lived way back then through hands on technology experiments, design experiments, research, communication and much ,much more. How do they sail back up the river? How did they move such enormous rocks to build the pyramids? How did the wheel begin? How do scientists come up with ideas? Who invented math? How did our writing evolve from their symbols of writing? Why do they have different gods? What happened to their gods? Learning how to read clues from artefacts and also from evidence in the text, helped us to become incredible historians as we had to figure out the source of ancient artwork. This involved a lot of reading for information, analysing text and recognising non fiction text features. Through explorations within math, reading, writing, geography, history and art, the children gather knowledge of how ancient civilizations developed and contributed to societies today. If you enjoy this complete unit of inquiry, you may also like my others: Revolutionaries, Rainforests and Food Chains, Adaptations of Living Things, Exploring poetry, Exploring Explorers and many more found in my blog store. Enjoy! Susan Powers www.pypteachingtools.com

MESSALINA WJCE GCSE LATIN LITERATURE: NARRATIVES 9542 - Brief Notes on Grammar

MESSALINA WJCE GCSE LATIN LITERATURE: NARRATIVES 9542 - Brief Notes on Grammar

For every paragraph, using Quizlet, I have put the details of the verbs and nouns in a comprehensive ordered page. When analysing the text you need to refer to the right type of word and although you can workout these details it is a big time saver and you can always check that you have deduced the right tense with this resource. In the exam, you should comment on the use of the "present participle", for example, and the effect. Correctly identifying the type of word is a huge part of the course and is a sure way to guarantee marks (making sure you comment on the EFFECT as well as what is detailed in these resources).

MESSALINA FLASHCARDS WITH DEFINITIONS. WJCE GCSE LATIN LITERATURE: NARRATIVES 9542

MESSALINA FLASHCARDS WITH DEFINITIONS. WJCE GCSE LATIN LITERATURE: NARRATIVES 9542

There are 10 packs of flashcards one for each paragraph of the prescribed text. I have made flashcards for every single word in the text. This is perfect for ensuring that you or your class know all the latin, so the literature test runs as smoothly as possible. Knowing the latin is essential before the exam and you will not have the time to look up the translations and for the majority of the trickier words, WJCE does not give the translations in the exam. All of the latin words I have included are in their conjugated form and appear like they do on the actual test so no brain power is needed when doing the exam. It is an extremely value resource and will certainly save time and boost your grade.
