Pompeii Journal Entry


Assignment: Write a journal entry based upon the information that you have gathered and learned about Pompeii and the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.
You will create a journal entry on Pompeii. Be specific and creative: the more accurately you depict or explain life in Pompeii, the better! You have two options for your journal entry:
  1. You are living in Pompeii in 79 A.D. Write about your daily life and activities, as well as events leading up to the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.
(Follow the basic directions of the Pompeii webquest, under links on the wiki)

  1. You are an archaeologist in Pompeii today. Write about your discoveries, as well as what your daily life is like. What tools do you use? What are conditions like? What specific part of Pompeii are you working in? What items have you uncovered?
(The Pompeii Archaeology websites, especially the Interactive Pompeii website, located on the links page of the wiki will be helpful.)
