Many of the things we have today, such as our language, our laws, our buildings and our cooking started in ancient Rome. This book introduces new readers to the history and culture of the Romans, including the architecture, games, clothing, and interesting aspects of daily life such as bathing, studying, and entertainment. The text introduces important new vocabulary—conquer, empire, mosaic—and is woven together with beautiful photographs and illustrations, which help readers get the context. A timeline, index, and glossary complete the book, and help build research skills and confidence in reading.
Accessible and engaging, with plenty of interest and repetition, and more variety of language and information than level 2. Text introduces a few more challenging words and a wider variety of tenses.
