Our lessons on Ancient Rome continue... today we had some UVA students teach a lesson so I had the chance to observe and write down these little tidbits...
Teacher: The Roman soldiers put their shiels over their heads to protect themselves.
M: Like a hermit crab!
Teacher: What might the Romans do to people they conquered?
W: They might make them scrub their bathtubs.
Teacher: An empire is a group of countries under one ruler?
S: Does that mean that one ruler is a REALLY big person!?
(We clarified that as our President Obama is over us but is not in fact sitting on us.)
