We learned about "Rome in a Day" and spent a lot of discussion time talking about the comparison of the decline of Rome to the United States. Students pointed out how we have political, economic, and military issues just like Rome did, which caused the civilization to eventually be conquered. We did the notes for this section, went through a Powerpoint, completed two short journal writings, and watched a video clip from Mankind showing the first MegaCity, ROME (one million residents). For Mankind video, start at 6:10 and go until 14 minutes in.
We completed a reading and question worksheet, which we attached to the Athens vs. Sparta worksheet from yesterday, and turned in for a grade.
