Easy to understand, good for teaching Apr 13, 2010
When my nephew was assigned a school project about ancient Rome, I bought this book for him. The pictures are well done and the explanations are thorough. I would definitely suggest this to teachers or students looking for help on a Rome project. My nephew is in fifth grade and he really enjoyed this book.
Spending the Day in ancient Rome May 14, 2009
I used this book for my 6th grade Social Studies class. We had already studied the ancient history and economy of Greece and Rome and just completed a unit on Greek mythology. We ended the unit with the information and projects in this book. The projects were excellent and easy to do and the kids enjoyed them. We ended our unit with a big celebration using the suggestions for the Roman meal. I highly recommend this book!
Nice book. Sep 13, 2008
