These caption resources require students to make judgements upon and explain the duties of various types of soldiers in the Roman Army. Great for a plenary or homework activity.
This resource is for my Year 7 groups. We are about to start studying gladiators and I am going to use the top trumps cards methods for them to think about the key strengths and weaknesses of different gladiators and be able to compare them. The resource below contains frameworks for six cards – five have the names of different gladiators on them while one is left blank so students can research one independently. Students also have to decide upon what categories they are going to use to measure the strengths and weaknesses. Alongside this I am going to use to resources for students to use as research – Rotten Romans from the Horrible Histories series and other is a great book called Gladiator – The Roman Fighter’s Manual by Philip Matyszak.
A learning grid I designed for my Year 7 class reviewing the lessons on the Roman soldier, Roman Army Equipment and Roman Army fighting techniques.
This PowerPoint is for a Key Stage 3 lesson on weapons or equipment of a Roman soldier. Contains an overview, main lesson task and a plenary using a specially designed word cloud.
This Learning Grid is on soldiers in the Roman Army and is geared for Year 7 students. Hope you find it useful.
