This package introduces the Mandate of Heaven to students in multiple ways. First, students are familiarized with the term in relation to the fall of the Shang Dynasty in a PowerPoint presentation. Then, students see the Mandate of Heaven in action by examining two primary sources and one secondary source. Finally, students apply what they've learned in a Twitter feed activity and by answering an Exit Ticket question. This package includes a PPT, 3 documents on the Mandate of Heaven, instructions for the Twitter feed activity (embedded in the PPT), and the Exit Ticket question (embedded in the PPT), and a lesson plan.
