We look at the creation and lifestyle of Ancient Romans. These worksheets are very helpful to get to understand the Roman mindset.

It is a really interesting story about how the city of Rome was founded. Two abandoned brothers Remus and Romulus were found by a she-wolf. She took them in and fed them. The two of them grew to be big and strong, as well as good leaders. They founded the city of Rome together, until Romulus killed Remus during the naming process. Romulus founded the city in 753 B.C. and it would continue to thrive for roughly 800 years. Romans are credited with the invention of dozens of engineering marvels. The Romans were true revolutionary inventors. It all started with the Roman invention of concrete. Roman concrete was it the late third century BC. This mixture then allowed them to build solid structures that they would then translate into large building and monuments. This was also solely responsible for what is seen as the most important contribution by the Romans, the aqueduct. Aqueducts are large concrete structures that can be used to transport water to other parts a city. Today this is most familiar to us through the sewer system, but this also helps in mining and farming as well.

These worksheets look at the Roman culture and people. We look at what the people did, who they worshipped, and the rise and the fall of the empire. We will break down the engineering marvels constructed such as the Colosseum by this civilization. We will also explore the leaders that perpetuated the culture further like Julius Caesar. We will also look at outliers that by the standards of today we can not even fathom like the concept of a barbarian culture.
