This activity helps students to learn about the effects of the invasion and settlement of the Romans on Britain. They begin by researching key facts about the Romans using Google Search and learn key research skills such as how to discriminate between different websites. The second task uses Goog More…le Earth to show students which places were part of the Roman Empire and where they are located. They create a tour in Google Earth of locations such as Rome, Hadrian’s Wall and Pont du Gard, adding photos of each to placemarks. Students then go on to focus on the Romans in Britain. They find information about life in Roman Britain from a range of sources and use these to create a map of Britain that shows the major Roman settlements. They add information and photos of the settlements and artefacts that have been found there. Topics also included; Ancient Rome.
