Pompeii

This article is about Pompeii, the Roman colony that was covered in ash from 79 A.D until 1748. I actually got to visit Pompeii  when I studied abroad in January! I remember reading about Pompeii in elementary school and wanting to be an archaeologist after. I think Pompeii is an interesting topic because it combines social studies and science.

      This is cool. I studied Latin for a long time in Junior High School, High School, and college.

      I have always loved the story of Pompeii. Perhaps you can incorporate that in the lesson you do later in the semester.
