All life on planet Earth relies on one particular substance... water! Grade 8 is learning about how the use of water helped shape the life that formed around the ancient city of Rome. Engineering feats that still exist 2000 years after they were created, such as the baths, aqueducts and fountains are clear indicators of just how important water was to helping bring about the explosive growth of Rome. Students seem particularly interested in the Roman obsession with bathing, and cleanliness.
