Ancient Rome Comes to Life


Temple of Jupiter Optimus Maximus

In order to better understand why the Roman Empire was positioned for success, the 5/6th grade History class have been working on urban planning.They had to consider geography and infrastructure, such as:

Where is your city located?
What is its water source?
What structures does your city have?
What resources does it need to protect?

Then students studied the structures of ancient Rome and each one of them picked a building to research, write a paper about and recreate as a model. Now we have a magnificent mini Rome in our atrium!

Triumphal Arch

Bridge of Tiberius

Colosseum

Pantheon

Villa de Papyri

Tower of Hercules
