This 77-slide PowerPoint covers almost any topic you would need to address with your students about China. There are links to several videos that help make connections to the material, including a Simpsons clip about outsourcing. Beautiful pictures are used throughout, and there are many opportunities for discussion. Some topics addressed include the Great Wall, isolation, inventions, the economic switch from a command economy to gradually allowing more free markets, advantages and disadvantages of having such a large population, religion, and more. There are opportunities for students to practice critical thinking, map, charts/graphs, and political cartoon analyzing skills. I have also left a few teaching tips and suggestions for questions to ask your class in the notes section of the slides. The PowerPoint ends with several interesting facts about China that my students loved. Check it out!
