facies carta

I decided to make the facies carta page available to those of you who would like to complete it on the computer and print it out. To find it:
1) Click here: Link to Mrs. White's filing cabinet
2) The assignment is the 3rd one down... facies carta page
3) To use it, you will have to download or "save as" onto your computer or flash/thumb drive.
4) The instructions for the assignment are also there (4th assignment down).

Remember! This is not a point and click, copy and paste assignment. Learn about that person and complete the profile based on their life....

The ancient Roman civilization is one of the biggest we study all year. It manages to incorporate pieces of every civilization we've studied this far, from Mesopotamia to Egypt to China to India to Judaism and Greece. It also leaves the greatest legacies to modern Europe and the Americas. We will be working on this unit for 3 to 4 weeks. There will be a common assessment at the end, and we will work on answering essay questions correctly as well.

There are many internet sites to visit that give information about Rome. Remember to use information that is at your level of understanding, and to search as specifically as you can for the topic... To the right are a number of sites that you can use to begin learning about Ancient Rome.
