Product Description

China is a fascinating country but it can be difficult to remember its long history. This resource includes blank and filled-in charts about 10 dynasties, 6 emperors, and 4 philosophers of China. Students can use the blank charts to take notes when learning about the Chinese dynasties, emperors, and philosophers. The charts that are already filled in with information are written in easy-to-understand language so students who are not reading on grade level can use them instead of their textbook or other materials to learn about the dynasties and people. A glossary is also provided to help your students comprehend the information in the filled-in charts.

Task cards with 5 "Would you rather" questions and 5 other types of questions are also included in this resource. They give your students speaking and writing opportunities to show what they have learned about Chinese history. The task cards come in both color and black-and-white versions.

In addition, there is a word search puzzle with 3 levels of difficulty and a crossword puzzle that you can use with early finishers, as a challenge, as homework, or just for fun. Answer keys are provided for all the puzzles.

✓ Please Note:

* This resource is also available in the Ancient & Modern China Reading & Writing Bundle, with 3 other resources; you can find it HERE.

You can use the charts in several ways:

* As a graphic organizer while reading about dynasties, emperors, and philosophers to consolidate information, or as a tool for checking comprehension after learning about the people and dynasties.

* The filled-in charts can be utilized as a basic source of information for your students -- you can orally present the material to your classes as a listening comprehension activity and have students write down the facts in the blank charts.

* You can cut the information on the filled-in charts into strips and do matching activities with them.

* The charts can also be used as study guides and can even be adapted to be used as tests.

* Once the charts are completed, they can be used as the basis for writing activities.

Eight suggestions for using the charts are included in this resource.

The 10 dynasties covered in this resource are the:

* Xia

* Shang

* Zhou

* Qin

* Han

* Tang

* Song

* Yuan

* Ming

* Qing

The 6 emperors are:

* Qin Shi Huangdi

* Liu Bang

* Wu Ze Tian

* Kublai Khan

* Qian Long

* Pu Yi

The 4 philosophers are:

* Lao Zi

* Confucius

* Mencius

* Han Fei Zi

Mencius is not always included in textbook chapters about China but a Chinese friend said Mencius is considered to be just as important as Confucius so I’ve included him in this resource.

A pronunciation guide to all the Chinese names of dynasties, people, and places is provided so you and your students will know how to say them correctly.

If you work in a Common Core or WIDA Consortium state, a list of the ELA standards addressed in this resource and 3 sample MPIs are also included for your convenience.

Compiling information in these charts lets students easily compare and contrast details about several major dynasties, emperors, and philosophers of China. Whether used for note-taking tasks, reading comprehension purposes, test review, or as the basis for writing or speaking activities, using these charts will help students learn about the importance of China in world history.

What educators who have used this resource say about it:

♥ "Great help." -- Suzanne L.

♥ "There was definitely a lot in this packet." -- Kelly O.

I taught at 2 universities in China for 3 1/2 years and loved it. I hope this resource helps your students enjoy learning about Chinese history just as much as I did when I was there.
