Synopsis

Romans by Jane Bower

This innovative series is designed to help teachers bring history topics to life through imaginative creative arts activities. Each pack includes 10 laminated, double-sided cards, printed in full color. The cards describe in detail activities that recreate aspects of life in a particular historical period, using art, drama and dance. Each activity is based on historically researched authentic practices of the time. Ideal for whole class or small group sessions, the packs are an inspiration for busy teachers looking for new ways to approach project work at Key Stage 2 - and can also easily be used with Key Stage 1 classes. Roman activities in this pack include wax tablets - recreating schoolroom writing equipment; prayers and curses - making clay tablets and votive tokens; perfumes and potions - herbal remedies and how to prepare them; make a mosaic - how to plan, design and construct a Roman mosaic; ideas for dances showing aspects of the Roman era, and a play for performance.
