The rise of the Roman Empire

Whether it's at the bottom of a mine, miles down, around a geothermal vent at the bottom of the ocean or at the top of Mt. Everest, all life on planet Earth relies on one particular substance... water! Grades 6-7 are learning about how the use of water helped shape the life that formed around the ancient city of Rome. Engineering feats that still stand today are clear indicators of just how important water is to helping bring about the explosive growth of Rome. Students are doing projects about the aqueducts, fountains, baths, sewers as well as roads in ancient Rome.
