Ancient Rome Facebook Page

Have you ever heard of Facebook? Well, duh. Who hasn't. Albums, status updates, 'likeing' stuff, poke, games, walls, etc. Facebook was started when I was in college. When it began, people started signing up all over the place. That has continued non-stop and today, we find Facebook as one of the most popular websites in the world. There are little "thumbs up" everywhere on the internet. Facebook is making itself the most powerful social networking site ever. Perhaps even you have a Facebook account? (though, the age limit is 13). I find it interesting and challenging to take something from our culture and turn it into a school project. Our culture is definitely intertwined with Facebook now, so lets use that. We will not actually be on Facebook, but creating our own "profile page." We have been studying Rome. You are familiar with Facebook. So, I thought we would combine the two to make a dynamic learning/review tool. Though Facebook is on the internet, we will be making our "Rome Facebook Page" on a piece of paper. (Due to lack of computer availability.)
For this project, you will need to read through the instructions. I will also provide you with an example to look at so you know exactly what is expected of you.

How/What to use to fill out your Facebook page:
1. Textbook
2. Websites from the "Ancient Rome Links"

3. Library Books from the cart
