Roman Republic

Why were the Romans so famous? In this BrainPOP movie Tim and Moby introduce you to the great achievements of the Roman Republic. You’ll find out who ran the government, how the leaders were chosen, and how parts of the Roman Republic live on today. You’ll learn about the three main branches of the Republic (sound familiar?), and how they worked. You’ll also find out who decided how Rome behaved towards its neighbors, who guarded the rights of the plebeians, and who lead the military forces. Finally, you’ll discover what we’ve borrowed from the Roman society — and what we’ve left behind. Hint: You’ll all be able to vote once you grow up!
