As discussed in class, this project will be done in groups.

The girls have already decided which two topics they will each complete. Research will be started in school and continued at home. The girls will then, in their groups, layout and design their project on a large poster in class. The project should have a mixture of information (neatly written and displayed), maps and pictures. 

Example topics are;

  • Roman society
  • Roman Gods
  • Roman Army
  • Fall of the Roman Empire
  • Roman homes, food & clothes

Remember, each girl in your group should be able to talk about all of the information on the poster.

If you have room at the end of the project you can add in other ideas e.g.  Interesting Roman Facts/ Quick Quiz

The project is due 8th of February (at the latest). 

Italian day will be Friday, 15th of February.

The library is also a great resource to use when doing projects. See if you can find any books that we could use in your local library.
