Day 14: Geography and Timeline of Medieval Japan (2/28/11)


Aim: The historians of 2016 will create an accurate timeline of medieval Japanese history in Google Draw using shapes, colors, and text.

Step 1: Put your new current event on your desk.

Step 2 Quick Question: Look at the population map of the United States. Why do most people live near the ocean? Please answer the question in the comment section of today’s post.

Step 3: Track Mr. Sanders as he goes over the history of Japan timeline using Prezi. If you want to view it later, you can see it here.

Step 4: Copy Mr. Sanders' timeline outline here and rename it 'History of Japan Timeline (First Name, Last Initial).

Step 5: Add four important events in Medieval Japanese history to the timeline. You must include an image for two of them. If you want to go above and beyond, you can create a Prezi account and create your timeline there.

Here are a list of sites you can use to find events that fit within the time period. Remember, the events must be relevant to Japanese medieval history and its development. Events not relevant to the development of medieval Japan do not count.

Only place events on your timeline if you can explain their significance during our timeline review.

Homework: Complete the reading on 20.3 (Government in Japan) and complete the corresponding workbook page.

  3. Most people probably live by the ocean because the ocean has some advantages. The ocean provides water underground, so it helps plants grow with rich soil. Also, the coasts by the beach contain "reasonable" weather conditions, except on some occasions.
