Long before the first European ships reached Southeast Asia's shores, the region was home to a cornucopia of complex, sophisticated civilizations. These civilizations gave rise to modern nation-states that spread throughout "island" and "mainland" SE Asia.
This short answer, multiple choice and "match-'em" worksheet is designed to help students appreciate the often subtle historical, cultural and geographical differences that are spread throughout the region: which empire built Angkor Wat? Who were the Trung Sisters and what do they symbolize? Which nation is home to the Irrawaddy River?
This worksheet will challenge students' reading, researching, comprehension, analytical and writing skills, as well as their understanding of life in Southeast Asia, before the arrival of European colonizers.
Perfect as an in-class activity, take-home assignment or review sheet!
