Do It Yourself (at Home) Roman Day

 

At Classroom Adventures we offer immersive and interactive experience days for schools and educational groups. However  we know that some children, whether home schooled or for some other reason, wont find themselves in a situation to benefit from one of our experience days. Therefore we have prepared some activities that you can run at home to host your very own Roman Experience Day.
