How I Use It
I used it with my level 1 students as an overview of Rome and some of its famous buildings before we started a project on architecture.
My Take
The videos and pictures from ancient Roman art history were wonderfully informative and well done. My students got a great overview of the city with the video reconstructions of ancient buildings in the video on the main page. Several of them wanted to explore further, but we ran out of time!
