This lesson is a great way to introduce Ancient China. It explains many traditions, family life, writing, clothing, etc. in China. This PowerPoint has review questions throughout the PowerPoint so that way students will be engaged and focused on the PowerPoint the whole time.
There is an art project at the end that involves them spelling their name in Chinese characters. While China doesn't technically have an alphabet the do have loose translations of what it would look like if they had an alphabet like ours.
The kids really loved this lesson, especially the writing their names part. This PowerPoint goes along perfectly with my Ancient China Jeopardy and would be a great review for the next day.
