The Roman Empire

Explore the Roman Empire at the time of its greatest expansion and discover how place names connect us to our Roman past

The Roman Empire was one of the largest and most powerful empires in human history and a fascinating area for students to explore in CLIL history classes. These resources include short reading texts and maps to teach students the fundamentals, including the confines of the empire and the density and distribution of towns.

Activities encourage students to connect the past to the present, by examining how modern place names can sometimes be an indicator of our Roman past. Useful phrases for speaking and writing are provided to help students tackle talking about this period in history.

  • Be aware that the provinces Raetia and Upper Germany are not shown on the map of the Roman Empire! So you have to add these provinces. Otherwise you cannot teach anything about the Limes as the border in Germany.

  • The first activity is great and I have used it successfully. The one about the roman towns and writing frame is not really suitable for the language learners - the words used are too sophisticated when we are generally aiming at key stage 3 level for year 10 ESOL students.
