Make your own Roman mosaic!

Take a look at the floors of the rooms in your classroom. What are they covered with? You may find carpets, rugs, tiles, wood and vinyl.

If you were a rich or important Roman, you may have had a special type of floor covering known as a mosaic. These were made up of small tiles known as ‘Tesserae’ fitted together to form patterns and pictures.

Use this teaching resource to explore Roman mosaics and get your students to have a go at making their own mosaic pattern.
