Students in Sheri Burke’s and Shannon Green’s third-grade classes at Greywolf Elementary became Roman citizens for a day. Students studied about how Rome began as a small town along the Tiber River and grew into an Empire that included gods, goddesses, emperors, kings and queens, patricians and plebeians. They explored how a great city could rise and fall and why it happened.

To end their unit, students feasted, and participated in Roman activities among which included, dice games with dice they made from clay, Roman Tic-Tac-Toe and Roman Bingo.
