Cover Of Hannibal Book

The activity “Hannibal” was developed using the Learning Magic Text and Graphics Click to Read TGCR template. In this template, the child is presented with a graphic and a text box with one to three paragraphs of information regarding the subject, and that page is then followed by a page with a multiple choice question to ascertain the student’s comprehension of the previously read materials. The child has the ability to go back and re-read the section if desired. Also a child needing extra support can click on the text box and the text will be read aloud to him or her. Behind the scenes we are capturing all their responses and automatically generating a graded report through the IntelliPics Studio 3® portfolio management and reporting system.

n 300 B.C. two major empires emerged in Europe and Northern Africa. They were the empires of Rome and Carthage. At this point in time the Romans were a hundred years before their glory years and Carthage was viewed by many as the most advanced empire in the world. The Romans however decided to try to expand their empire by taking Sicily from the Carthagininas. This began the start a series of Wars between the two empires that are remembered as the Punic Wars.

The most notable character to come out of that war was Hannibal, the son of a famous Carthaginian general, Hamilcar Barca. At his death, Hamilcar swore his son to a lifetime fight against the Romans and Hannibal did not let his father down.
