Romans Planning Week 1

Romans Planning Week 1

This resource consists of a history and geography lesson on the Romans. It is the first week in each subject on the topic of the Romans. In History, the children will be thinking about the term history and what it means. They will then discuss and fill in a KWL chart based on the Romans, which is a nice little assessment tool. The children will fill in what they Know about the ROmans and what they Want to know about the Romans. This provides an interest into the topic and children will hope to have their curiosities answered by the end of the topic. The L section of the KWL will be left until the end of the topic where children will fill out what they have Learned.In Geography, the children will be looking at which countries were occupied by the Roman Empire. This lesson looks at using compass skills and atlas work also, which is a great geographical skill in itself.This resource comes with both a history and geography plan, along with two separate presentations to use in the lesson. They are saved as notebooks. If you do not have notebook viewer on your computer you can download it for free online so that you can avail of these presentations.KWL and SEN resource included.Please review this resource :)
