These fill-in-the-blank notes (with an answer key provided) describe how Shi Huangdi ("First Emperor") built the strong, authoritarian Qin government and ultimately, unified China. Although his rule was harsh (he increased his power by following the philosophy of Legalism), he ushered in China's classical age.
Afterwards, students are required to fill in a graphic organizer that focuses on the causes and effects associated with the unification of China. An answer key is provided (information from a textbook). Students can either fill this out on their own by using any relevant notes/textbook/reading resource or do so while the teacher is reviewing it.
