This is a really engaging pack. We particularly enjoyed the eBook, which covered a lot of different areas of Roman life and lots of interesting little facts that we hadn't discovered elsewhere. It was the perfect overview to accompany field trips to Caerleon (which is fantastic, by the way!) and Chester, which in combination helped to bring the topic alive - and the quiz and vocabulary activity were a fun way to end our project. Thank you!
An excellent time saver. Has all key information presented in a child friendly format. Excellent for project work.
This past year I was lucky to have some students who were self-motivated to learn (ages 8-9). During our "centers" time while I worked with small groups and 1-1 with students I usually have different activities for the students who are fast-finishers of their daily work. When we were getting ready for our Romans unit I printed off many of the Roman activities from the Romans pack, and they were so excited to jump right in! It was quiet, everyone was engaged, and I had groans when it was time to clean up! They wanted to keep going! Can't wait to try this again with other packs!
I panicked when my district said I had to document every resource I used to makes sure they fit our standards, not just fun. Well, you made it work in both areas! I was able to match both ELA and Social Studies standards, and the kids love the different pieces - BONUS - engagement! Thank you for a fabulous resource!!
I also use the Egyptian source and look forward to incorporating the Myths and Legends next year (as we have already studied this one). I also use a wide variety of packs in the English department; you plan my year!!
Fantastic pack bursting with information. Find teaching packs particularly useful for project work when we've been looking at a topic. The packs are a means of expanding children's knowledge on a variety of themes/subjects relevant to the topic under discussion/review. Children particularly love the variety of images that form a fundamental part of all TeachingPacks.co.uk resources. Keep them coming.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this pack
My teacher's son was away for much of this topic, I was able to print this off and go through it with him.
He ended up sneaking it into bed to read through as he found it fascinating, well presented and easy to follow
Thanks a million
Used this resource to go back in time to the construction of Hadrian's wall on a recent stay in Northumberland. This was a VERY useful resource (boy age 7) and I tailored the pages to the ones I knew we would get most out of, numerals and money, families and children, gods, events cards, activities etc. Many of the classroom banners, posters etc are not for us but nevertheless it still left a decent chunk to choose from. I am hoping to find some way of downloading some to ipad in an interactive form, possibly by using ipads notes which can handle pdf with the on screen writable feature.
Our class of children aged between 7 -11 were working with this resource for the whole term. The children are from all over the world, and English is often their third language,and having their own personal book to work from made life so much easier for everyone. Living in Tenerife, being able to print our own very informative booklets is so much cheaper than providing text books that cost so much to ship here. Differentiation was very straightforward because of the range of material included in the pack. We could have used the pack to include children from other classes in the school as the material was adaptable and beautifully drawn and presented. The booklets will make up packs for a future lesson in 2 or 3 years time when we revisit the topic.
The topic was used to develop skills across the curriculum - map work for geography; maths - using Roman numerals; a whole range of English skills including how to use a glossary and contents page for information gathering; and the soldier section for persuasive writing to make wanted posters. The quiz at the end was used to assess the knowledge that the children had acquired throughout the term.
A great resource for teaching the Romans to first year secondary school students(Ireland). Covers all the topics they are expected to know for their Junior Cert- housing, food, clothing, burial customs etc. Colourful and eye-catching. I would definitely recommend this pack- would be great to have this in ppt format too.
My year 1 class loved learning about the Romans - we especially enjoyed Roman numbers. We even used them to make art - designing different fonts for numbers and then combining them to make patterns. Lots of children were really interested in the life of Roman children. The resources are well made - colourful and informative even for younger children in Key stage 1.
