Ancient Rome Documentaries for 3rd/5th graders?


Recommended Posts

We are currently studying Ancient Rome and I am aware of the list of corresponding Netflix/SOTW movies and documentaries. The problem I am having is knowing if they are age appropriate for my 3rd and 5th graders. Is anyone aware of a list that breaks it down by age/grade level? I've found several documentaries at our library, but they are mostly for 7th grade and up. We did watch the Ancient Civilizations one with Arizona Smith (our library has those for many of the time periods we've studied so far), but I'm looking for more.


Thanks in advance for any suggestions. I'd also love to hear of any other Rome resources that you really loved for this age level. We're just getting started.

Not sure about your stance on Christianity, but Drive Thru History (available on Netflix) has at least one good episode on the Roman Empire (there are two available on Netflix for Ancient Rome, but we have only seen the first one).



I totally agree here. The great thing is that they are short enough to hold their attention. :)
