Preface: In AD 476, the Roman Empire came to an end. The last Roman emperor was replaced by a barbarian king. Rome had lasted over a thousand years. Why had the empire crumbled? An analysis shows that Rome suffered from political, economic, and social problems. These factors were interwoven and eventually caused the empire to crumble into decay. Rome has a warning to other civilizations: examine the decay and perhaps avoid the same mistakes that doomed the once mighty empire.

 

Instructions: Students are to work as a pair or team. Each pair/team researches and reports to the class, in the format of a Powerpoint or Google Slide, on one of the following problems the Romans faced in the last years of the empire:
