Day 140: Welcome to Medieval China!

Standard:  Students analyze the geographic, political, economic, religious, and social structures of civilizations of China in the Middle Ages.

Aim: The historians of 2017 will be able to retell and make connections to the history of China from the collapse of the Han dynasty to the Song.

This video will help you understand Chinese geography. Thanks Mr. Zoller!

2.  Quick Question: What makes a country wealthy? Make sure your idea has one complete thought!

3. Complete this TED ED video lesson I put together for you.  If you haven't created a TED Ed account yet (part of yesterday's assignment) do so now.

4. Use Quizlet to study the key vocabulary for the unit.

  • civil war
  • dynasty
  • reforms
  • implement
  • proposal
  • urge
  • position

5. Create a new Tumblr post summarizing the history of China form after the fall of the Han dynasty through the Song dynasty. You may need to refer back to the video.
