Decline of the Roman Empire from There and Back Again A Math Teacher’s Quest on Teachers Pay Teachers
For this activity my goal was to list the successes of Rome and explore why it declined. You will need to find a video that explains the decline of Rome. My school happens to have a Discovery Education account and I am using their video “Civilizations: Fall of Power” as a basis for the note taking portion.
