Social Studies- update

We are just about finished with our unit on Ancient China. Last week the students completed an investigation on a major religion by creating an Informational Display illustrating the major beliefs and creating an Advice Column using each religion’s perspective on common problems. This week students investigated the Silk Road and the effect that this trade had on China’s economy as well as culture through a Web-quest activity. They also completed a timeline of some of the major dynasties in China’s history.

Monday students will take an ancient China Unit Test. The students worked on the study guide in class on Thursday and Friday to prepare. A copy of a blank study guide and the answers are posted in Google Classroom. There is a link to Quizlet for the Ancient China vocabulary posted in Google Classroom as well.

Once the students have completed the China Unit test we will be off to start our next unit, ancient Greece!

Have a great and safe weekend!
