Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire Workbook
Free Printable History Workbook for World History > Ancient Rome > Ancient Rome Miscellany
This student-friendly workbook is part of our World History series. "The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire" focuses on ancient Rome from the rise of Augustus following his defeat of Antony and Cleopatra at the Battle of Actium, through the Pax Romana and rise of Christianity, to the defeat of Rome by the barbarian Odoacer in 476.

Like all of the workbooks in this series, brief chunks of easy-to-read text are full of fascinating, important information that will intrigue children ages 12 and up. Interspersed throughout the text are numerous questions and activities, ranging from basic recall, to critical thinking, to map work, to artistic expression, to puzzles. Learning is constantly reinforced throughout the text. This workbook is appropriate for everyone from fourth-graders learning ancient history for the first time, to high school students preparing for the AP European or World History tests.

Our student workbooks provide learners the opportunity to learn independently. Parents or teachers introduce the topic, then give students the workbook to read and complete. After the workbook has been completed, students have acquired the necessary comprehensive content knowledge to competently discuss the topic with educators and others, and will be motivated to branch their study of the topic into other related lines of inquiry. Works great as a stand-alone item or as a supplement to a larger unit.
