Synopsis

Ancient Romans by Jillian Powell

Each book in this delightful, child-friendly series focuses on a different period in history, from Ancient Rome right up to World War 2. Children will love learning about each era, and then following the simple instructions to make useful or interesting objects from that time. Age-appropriate and accessible, the books are jam-packed with great ideas and perfect for use at home or in the classroom. In Craft Box: Ancient Romans, you can learn how to make a shield, a Janus mask, a dolphin mosaic, a Roman coin box, a bulla, a triumphal arch photo frame, a fresco, a Draco standard, a laurel wreath, a seal, a clay lamp and a sun dial! Fun facts on every spread give background information about Ancient Rome and its people, from the lives of emperors, to ordinary Romans and slaves. A Further Information spread suggests age-appropriate websites and books, so children can go away and learn more about the Romans. A glossary explains any tricky words, and will help to further increase children's knowledge and understanding of the era.
