This is a fun extension activity intended for use in an Ancient or World History class examining the process of cultural diffusion in the Ancient World. It is perfect for a class that is in the process of exploring Chinese contributions to global culture, or one examining the ways in which the Roman Roads or Hellenistic Civilization opened up Europe to the influences of the far East. This activity can be completed in a class period or assigned as a homework or project. You can also add complexity by bringing in cookbooks as a resource or by asking students to do the same.
This activity is included in my Ancient China Unit
