Here are two 2-page spreads from my son Daniel’s Roman History Main Lesson book, a drawing and tile made by Tristan and a portrait of Cleopatra by Eathen.
Top left is an excerpt from Macaulay’s poem Horatius Keeps the Bridge, illustrated on the right. Top right is Daniel’s illustration of Hannibal crossing the Alps, following the last paragraph of a short essay that we wrote about Hannibal. The mosaic pattern Daniel found too difficult to draw freehand, so we used graph paper.
Anyone wanting instructions for this as well as general guidance for putting together a Roman History block might like to check out the Christopherus Sixth Grade Syllabus which contains the Roman History main lesson (available from our Book Store).
