Ancient culture is the foundation upon which all existing cultures have developed. The many profound influences of Ancient China often go unnoticed. You have been selected as a member of a special international relations team to research an aspect of Ancient Chinese culture. Using the knowledge you gain, you will acknowledge and celebrate China’s many contributions the world.
You will choose one topic from the list below and research it. Each topic has 5 essential questions that must be answered in one paragraph each. Be thorough with your responses and explain each part of the question. Each essential question will be answered in one paragraph (typically 8-10 sentences, including a topic sentence, details, and a concluding sentence) and will be typed up on separate pages and must include one or more pictures representing the topic.
You will be using electronic encyclopedias, the Internet, and your Social Studies book to research the answers to your questions. I will schedule class time for you to access these sources. If you have access to additional information, you may use sources other than the ones I provide for you. However, you must document all resources in your bibliography, so be sure to copy down any important details about the source. At least three sources must be used.
There will be several due dates along the way to help break up the project. It is crucial that you keep up with these deadlines so you are not overwhelmed the days leading up to the final due date. Plan and organize your time wisely. Take advantage of the class time and ask for help!
