Ninth grade students enrolled in AP World History participated in a Museum Walk at Columbia High School in which they displayed time capsules they created to depict life during the Roman Empire.
Each time capsule contains creative, realistic and authentic artifacts that members of a family living in Roman Territory would have contributed over the span of more than 1,000 years. Each artifact provided clues and offered insight on the social, political, economic and cultural developments that occurred from the founding of the city of Rome, during the Roman Republic, and through the height and eventual collapse of the Western Roman Empire in 476 C.E.
“I’m so proud of my students’ hard work and commitment to this challenging course,” said Columbia Social Studies teacher Julie Lansing. “They immersed themselves in Roman history to develop their projects and have shown what a wonderfully creative and ambitious group they truly are!”
