Lesson Time: Approximately 40-50 minutes
This product contains two readings, each on the Shang and Zhou Dynasties. The readings are sourced from the Plato Edmentum Online Courseware, which coincides with most states' curriculum for World History/Civilizations classes. In my class, I have students work individually or in groups. They must work through the readings, then fill out the Venn Diagram with 5 items for each dynasty's differences, and 3 for similarities. I then have students fill out the guiding questions on the back. If you are using Plato Courseware, the questions are derived from the Mastery Quiz submissions for "Ancient India and China."
