Ancient Rome - and the winner is....

As we're wrapping up the Republic of Ancient Rome before we move onto Empire, I asked the kids for representations of the Roman Government. We gave out prizes (candy).

The award for the longest representation....
The award for the most creative representation....(legos)

Our award winners....
After discussing whether Julius Ceasar is a hero or a tragic figure in history, we ended with a comparison of what Star Wars episode coorelated to which time in Rome's history and which Star Wars character related to which historical figure from ancient Rome. I left the room as the kids jointly fell into Saga Begins. All-in-all a good homeschool co-op day.
