Do you need a complete lesson covering China's Ming Dynasty? This is is! This PowerPoint lesson includes bell work, an objective, a short lesson about Ming Dynasty China, and a final assessment called Table Top Twitter. This lesson focuses on the Great Wall of China, the Forbidden City, Isolationism, and Zheng He's sea voyages. As a final assessment, students will work in groups of 4 reading and passing 4 different articles. They will 'Tweet" the main idea of each of the 4 articles. This lesson is a lot of fun and great for middle school and young high school students. All 4 reading articles are included as the last 4 slides in the PowerPoint. I have included one in the preview. Enjoy!
