Ancient Rome

Bekah, Matt, Dane and Levi began their journey back in time to Ancient Rome yesterday at Wildwood.  For the next six weeks they will learn how people lived, ate, fought and learned in Ancient Rome.

Proud bearers of their "Standards" - did you know that during battle the standard of a fallen soldier couldn't fall to the ground with him so those around him had to catch it quickly?

Today I have been hearing random thoughts on Rome ....

"Mommy, did you know that Romans developed pipes for carrying water but they were made out of lead so it poisoned the water?"  They then dragged out one of our history books to show me a picture of an aqueduct.

"Hey, Mommy!  Did you know the Romans had the first shopping mall?"

I'm sure there will be many more interesting tidbits of information during the next few weeks.  Stay tuned!
