Activity Overview


Using a G.R.A.P.E.S. Chart to organize information about Ancient Civilizations is a useful tool to enhance students' analysis of the characteristics and contributions of a society. Going further and including visuals helps students to better retain the details of each category.

When learning about Ancient Civilizations, students may need teachers to provide a variety of resources. The use of diverse resources such as primary sources, videos, songs, readings from textbooks, encyclopedias and literature can be helpful for students to gain an accurate and complete picture of the time period. Students can use graphic organizers to write notes about the different categories as they learn.

Roman politics were comprised of different groups of people, with varying degrees of power. Much of Rome's politics influenced the development of other governments, like that of the United States. In this activity, students will create a spider map that illustrates either the government or politics of Ancient Rome.
