Introduction to the Romans using artefacts. Ideally the lesson should be taught using some original and replica items which may be in your stockroom or can be borrowed from local museums. However, there are photos of the objects in the Powerpoint which could be printed off for pupils. The lesson could also be delivered as a general history lesson on the use of artefacts. Powerpoint and editable worksheet included.
In this lesson pupils will examine the growth of the Roman empire. There is a map exercise where pupils colour the growing empire at different stages. Pupils analyse the map by answering questions. Extension task included.
