Day 5: The Mongols in China (2/14/11)

Aim: The historians of 2016 will evaluate the Mongol empire and life in China under their rule.

Quick Question: If you could give you parents a grade for how well they are doing at home and supporting you, what would you give them? Explain why you would grade them that way. Please answer the quick question in the comments using complete sentences.

Step 1: Track the video on the Mongols. If you need to see the video at home you can see it here. Do not watch the video in class. It will slow down our internet too much and be distracting.

Step 2: Track Mr. Sanders as he explains how to create a google doc and table. Create a google doc with the title Mongols in China.

Step 3: Take notes on the Mongols as Mr. Sanders goes though his presentation. If you miss any information you can see the presentation here. If you need to see what your notes should look like, click here.

Step 4: Read about the Mongol's treatment of foreigners here and complete the report card for the Mongols here. Make sure you explain your answers.

Homework: Read about Travel and Exploration in China on the handout and complete the corresponding workbook page. You will need to know the different Chinese characters for the inventions. You can see them here.

  15. If I were to grade my parents on support, I would give them an A+ because they support me well. They provide the materials I need or needed from start to today. However, this will change as I grow up where I will need to provide what I need.

I would give my mom an "A" because she is a really good parent, she makes me mad a lot but there is many times when she makes me happy.I wouldn't give my mom an "A+" because she is just not as good as she can be.
