Allow your students to explore life in Tang & Song China, while also living under the rule of the Mongols in this student-centered activity. Students will create a visual representation of life in China's golden age, while also composing a brief writing sample from the perspective of an explorer witnessing this time period first-hand. The same will be done for life under the great Mongol Empire. This activity has proven effective and engaging for both general education and special education students, as well as for student who are more visual/artistic and those who more more comfortable expressing themselves in the written form. This is a fabulous activity to review previous areas of student and verify student comprehension.
