Last fall the kids and I spent a week creating various Hands on Roman history projects. I’ve been slowly sharing bits and pieces of them over time, but I wanted to get them all out there and done. Besides, we have some other fun projects we’ve done, and I’d just as soon have all of our Roman history projects together in one place.
That, and I’ve been writing a book on Hands on Roman History, so this is the outline for that book and topics I’m thinking about. Would you guys be interested in buying a book like this, or am I completely off my rocker?
Hands on Roman History: Important People
These are the units I’m planning on including in the book. So far I have a few of them written and published on the blog, if no one’s interested I’ll shelf the rest for now so I can work on some Viking and Middle Ages stuff because that’s the period we’re in.
Julius Caesar (I have more to add for him, big surprise I found him interesting)
Mark Antony and Cleopatra
Hands on Roman History: Daily Life and Religion
Sometimes the odds and ends of daily life reveal more about a country than the big events.
A day in the life of a Roman Citizen
Hands on Roman history projects
This of course is the heart and soul of the project, and we had a lot of fun creating these hands on projects.
