This week the students began the Ancient China Unit. We began the week by examining the geography of China and how natural barriers, like mountains and deserts have impacted China’s development. Students are currently working to create a TALDOGS map of East Asia, which are due on Monday.
Students also spent time this week analyzing the Three Ways of China: Buddhism, Confucianism, and Daoism. We completed a chart that compared the basic beliefs of each religion. Next week students will be comparing and contrasting these religions. They will also begin working on an information display about one of these religions, detailing facts about the founder, basic beliefs, quotes, and also including an advice column.
Have a great weekend!
