Today, Google announced the winners of their Google Ancient Rome in 3D Curriculum Competition. There were three winners in the grades 9-12 category and three winners in the grades K-8 category. On the Google for Education site you can find each of the winning lesson plans in pdf format. One of the winners in the 9-12 category, Benjamin Johnson of Hampden Academy in Maine, created a video overview of his lesson plan. I've embedded the video below.
