Today is the last day of the semester and I am still working hard on entering grades. All classes, except periods 5 & 6, are up-to-date. Please check your grades here and let me know if you believe there are any discrepancies.
Periods 1-4 worked on a left-sided assignment today, while periods 5 & 6 worked on the map from yesterday.
Periods 1-4 began reading chapter 1 and discussed the Roman Empire during the time period known as Pax Romana - Roman Peace. In class, they began illustrating the Roman Empire at its height. Their homework is to recreate the map from pg. 138 in the text. The assignment can be found here. Periods 5 & 6 attended the geography bee and will begin this assignment tomorrow.
Students are beginning chapter 1 with chapter 1-1 vocabulary. The words are aqueduct, Pax Romana, anatomy, and vault. You can find the vocabulary worksheet here. Please see the day's agenda below.
We are watching a video today and taking notes. Our focus is on the height of the Roman Empire, which includes their engineering accomplishments. The video is called "Engineering an Empire: Rome" and can be found on Youtube here.
