School projects

History teaching materials

Let pupils make their own papyrus or wax tablet. They will feel like they are in an ancient writing workshop.

Creative teaching resources | Painting bookmarks

Handmade bookmarks can be purchased individually or as a class set from the Roman Shop. Have your students paint them, decorate them with pressed flowers or grasses, or even decorate them with Latin script. The sky's the limit when it comes to individual design. Afterwards, students can even cover the bookmarks to prevent them from wearing out. This will brighten up any history or Latin book when a specially made bookmark points to the page. You can even add a decorative ribbon, leather cord or border to the bookmarks. And of course, homemade Roman bookmarks make the perfect gift for anyone who loves to read!

Teaching resources Rome | Making games

Or let pupils play like children in ancient times with the real Roman round mill game. The Roman children's game is still fun for young and old and gives an insight into the everyday life of the Romans. In ancient times, the round mill game was an integral part of entertainment. The do-it-yourself kit on the Roman Shop pages not only contains instructions for building the game, but also easy-to-understand instructions for the rules of the popular Roman game.

Teaching aid Rome - make your own wax tablets

Or take the children to make a real Roman wax tablet, just like the ones Roman children used at school. The craft kit on these pages of the Roman Shop contains everything you need to make a wax tablet: Three wooden boards made of real beech wood, beech wood strips for the frame, glue for gluing, real beeswax for writing on the board and wooden sticks specially sharpened by the craftsmen as styluses to carve into the wax with the writing utensils. For a project week or a history lesson on the Romans and the Middle Ages, this craft kit is a real creative enrichment. The easy-to-follow instructions make the project a quick and guaranteed success.
