We recently decided to show a movie to our 6th, 7th and 8th grade students on the last day of school. But when we started brainstorming ideas we had some difficulty coming up with movie titles that (a) the students would like and (b) we thought would be worth showing.

Listed below are the movies we came up with after consulting a variety of experts including: current middle school students, former middle school students, middle school teachers from across the country, lots of family movie websites, and random people on twitter and facebook.

    Rome The capital and largest city of Italy, in the west-central part of the country on the Tiber River. Traditionally founded by Romulus in 753 B.C., it was ruled first by Etruscans, who were overthrown c. 500 B.C. The Roman Republic gradually extended its territory and expanded its influence, giving way to the Roman Empire during the reign of Augustus (27 B.C.–A.D. 14). As capital of the empire, Rome was considered the center of the known world, but the city declined when Constantine transferred his capital to Byzantium (323). Alaric I conquered the city in 410, leading to a lengthy period of devastation by barbarian tribes. In the Middle Ages the city revived as the spiritual and temporal power of the papacy increased. During the 1800s Rome was held at various times by the French until it became the capital of Italy in 1871. Vatican City remains an independent enclave within the confines of Rome. Population: 2,550,000. Byzantine Empire, successor state to the Roman Empire (see under Rome), also called Eastern Empire and East Roman Empire. It was named after Byzantium, which Emperor Constantine I rebuilt (A.D. 330) as Constantinople and made the capital of the entire Roman Empire. Although not foreseen at the time, a division into Eastern and Western empires became permanent after the accession (395) of Honorius in the West and Arcadius in the East. Throughout its existence the Byzantine Empire was subject to important changes in its boundaries. The core of the empire consisted of the Balkan Peninsula (i.e., Thrace, Macedonia, Epirus, Greece proper, the Greek isles, and Illyria) and of Asia Minor (present-day Turkey). The empire combined Roman political tradition, Hellenic culture, and Christian beliefs. Greek was the prevalent language, but Latin long continued in official use For more info check http://www.answers.com /topic/byzantine-empire gatita_63109

    No comparison. One was an empire - the other isn t.

    The Middle Colonies were the most ethnically and religiously diverse of the thirteen original colonies because of the influence of their Polish, English, Dutch, French and German origins. This influence included tolerance in religion, and resulted in New Netherland s success as the commercial center of the eastern North American colonies. This was evident by the fact that they had more agriculture than the New England colonies. The Middle Colonies were also known as the "bread basket" of the thirteen colonies because of their large grain export. It was also the mid-Atlantic colonies that expanded into other areas of commerce before the other colonies at the time. African Americans both slave and free, made up more than 15 percent of the population of the lower Hudson River. There were many brick buildings in the Middle Colony due to the amount of clay along the riverbanks. Originally, clothing in the Middle Colonies for the most part resembled the Dutch form of dress from the south. Quakers wore neat and simple clothing as their religion taught them. Many clothes were homemade on the frontier. Flax produced linen and deerskin was used to make breeches, shirts, jackets, and moccasins. Forest products were used to make dyes. Yellow came from butternut tree bark; red came from the roots of the madder herb; blue was extracted from the flowers of indigo plants to obtain the Indigo dye; brown came from the hulls of black walnuts. English settlers started arriving in the colonies in 1607. Two different companies would finance the expeditions for the colonist. The Virginia Company and Massachusetts Bay Company would both set up colonies in the new world. They shared their similarities and differences while setting up the colonies. They would struggle the first year, have problems with the Indians, create a system of laws to rule by and were established to help the mother country, England. Both companies would start out differently. They had different reasons to go there, took different people, and had different economic organizations, religions and education. When the settlers arrived to America they were seeing new land and things they had never seen before. So when the colonist funded by the Virginia Company and Massachusetts Bay came they both struggles the first year. Typhoid fever and Malaria were some of the diseases killing the colonist. In Jamestown only 38 of the original 104 would survive the first year. The Massachusetts Bay Co. in Plymouth had 200 of their settlers die the first year. Both colonies would have their problems and get help from the Indians. The Northern colonies built ships and traded to make their money. Although, they had their similarities there were also some differences they had. Also, they came with different people. They believed in hard work and shipped food and lumber to the other colonies. A group of Pilgrims who thought their children were growing up Dutch instead of English, got a charter from the Massachusetts Bay Company and set sail for Virginia, but got blown off course and landed in Plymouth, looking for Religious freedom. The colony of Virginia grew tobacco as their main cash crop and had indentured servants to help grow it. The Puritans in Plymouth came with their whole families in groups of 6-10 people. In the end most of the money would go to England. In the 1620 s religious turmoil had erupted in England. The Puritans would establish the Mayflower Compact in 1620 and went by majority rule. In Massachusetts the Puritans tried to avoid slavery to keep from contaminating their religion.
