This lesson introduces students to Imperialism: Early US Involvement in China. Starting with a great enrollment activity which is sure to engage them all and get their attention. Students will learn the following; US role in China, Open-Door Policy, and Spheres of Influence. Assignments include Narrative Chain of a Christmas Shopping experience, which reveals major content of the lesson. Have fun seeing if students can recreate the story! All of my lessons start with engaging enrollment activity that connects history to student's lives, lesson objectives, review, and celebration/praise. Enjoy!!!!!! Engage!!!!! Celebrate!!!!!
