Fifth and sixth graders needed a hands-on way to remember the many historical figures they came across in their study of Ancient Rome. When I suggested “Romanmon Cards” – modeled after Pokemon cards, but containing information specific to our Ancient Roman personalities – students were immediately excited. They got to work right away, researching what the different Romans were known for and applying that to the cards.  Upon completing the project, students got to re-enact different struggles and battles by using the cards.
