Ancient Rome: "You Are There"


All year you have been reading about other people time warping back into ancient civilizations. Now, it is time for you to time warp. Johnny Rawten gets to time warp. The I Series character gets to time warp. Why can't you?
We have introduced ourselves to ancient worlds a number of different ways (library books, video, comic books, textbook, etc.) I think, though, that the best way to get introduced to an ancient world is to not read about it. Not watch a video about it. But to actually GO there. With this new creation from WSG, you will time warp back to ancient Rome. You will spend a day in this ancient civilization discovering and learning about it. You will be making decisions. Your decisions will have consequences and like all decisions, some are better than others. So now, it is time for you to time warp. Hang on, its going to be a wild ride. (Maximum score is 100. Good Luck!)

Play: Ancient Rome-You Are There
Bonus Questions: As you made your way around Rome, making decsions and dealing with the consequences, you discovered many things about ancient Rome. Can you find the answers to these bonus questions in the game? Post a comment with your answers.
#1: What type of food do patricians eat?
#2. What is a Eques gladiator?
#3. Where do charioteers race their chariots?
#4. What is the Forum?
#5. What is the Pantheon used for?
Thank you!

The way you get 100 points is by choosing all of the right answers during the game so you don't get any -'s and you get the max # every time. Then you have to answer all of the bonus questions correctly

(ps. I hope i didnt do that right because then my score would be -15)

I know how to get to 100 points! You go through and get all the right answers including the end game part. Then you answer all five questions..... if you get them all right you get 100 points! Let me explain, when you go throught you get 95 points then you add another five by doing these questions. That equals 100 points!


1. Meat and really nice food when all the peblians get is bread.
2.An Eques gladiator is a gladiator that will rid horses when they fight. Sometimes people use ships to fight and they have to flood the colliseum.
3.The charioteers race their chariots at colliseum.
4.A place where..... well its kind of like the White House. All the politic stuff goes on there.
5.A place to worship the gods.

Well gotta go.... I also know who teach timmers is. But first you will have to find me in period six.

HINT: I am a loud person

Mr. Klumper said...

"Stranger in 6th Period": Good try, but you are not correct. That is not how you get 100 points. You do not get any points for doing the bonus questions. The secret to unlocking 100 points is in the game itself. Good Luck!
