Children will learn all about different civilizations and inventions—the way they changed history, their evolution over centuries, and their influence on modern times—through the activities and anecdotes provided in this interactive series. One thousand years of ancient Roman civilization and its effect on modern living are presented in this interactive guide. Divided into themes and further supplemented by time lines and sidebars, every aspect of Rome is discussed, from Pompeii and gladiator bouts to the technology behind Roman baths and siege machines. A comprehensive "who's who" of ancient Rome explains the various roles within the empire and also takes a look at their daily lives. Children's understanding of the Roman way of life is enhanced with 15 activities that range from creating mosaics to building replicas of Roman ruins.
