The Roman Empire

Even though Rome began as a small city in Italy, it was able to grow through force and violence until it united Italy and much of the known world.

To learn more about the Romans and to demonstrate what you have learned, we will be having a Roman Day.  During the Roman Day project, you will be exploring the people and culture of ancient Rome.  This project will be used as the assessment for chapter 9.
