The High King Lives

Rome Week 3: Chariots, Pompeii, and the End January 8, 2014

Hello dear ones! I’ve finally got week 3 of Rome together. Sorry it took so long. I can’t wait to show you the Middle Ages next Monday. Yes, I hope to be back on schedule then.  We began our study with finishing The Story of the World Book 1. We read chapters 39-42 and covered Nero, Christian persecution, the catacombs, the British rebellion, the Huns, the Visigoths, and the fall of Rome.

We had a small feast of chicken, cheese, deviled eggs, and bread while we watched Ben Hur. Wow! What a long movie! Then we made a chariot out of a laundry scoop. Our lil soldier and horse fit perfectly with it.

We learned a bit about Pompeii and it’s destruction. We took an online tour of Pompeii. We read an eye witness account of what happened (the man was in a city nearby).

Found here:

And then we made a pop up picture of a villa in Pompeii before the eruption. You can find that link in my Pinterest at the end of this post.
