Romans were very interested in exotic animals, but sadly this was usually for entertainment and warfare purposes.


  • Find out about Roman military elephants.
  • Research entertainment in the coliseum.


Here are some useful websites:

Safety: Always take care when using the internet.  Use trusted websites that are suitable for children.  Use ‘KS2’ and ‘for kids’ in your search terms.  If you see anything that worries or upsets you, tell your trusted adult straight away.


If you want to share your learning, then search for ‘Blank Postcard’ on PurpleMash.  You can draw a picture and write a message showing what you have learnt about how the Roman Empire used animals. 


You could also do your work on paper, and then upload a photo.
