Product Description
1. Using the printable PDF pages 1 & 2, have students read in pairs, groups, or as a class, the informative texts "Taoism: The Beginning" and "Confucianism: The Beginning". Allow time for questions as needed. Highlight or underline key words or concepts, if desired.

2. Read and discuss the "Fast Facts". Allow time for questions.

3. After reading, compare and contrast Confucianism and Taoism. What similarities do you see? What differences?

4. Break into small groups and have the students follow page 3 for the guided, small group activity which applies the knowledge they have learned and allows them to discuss and debate together. Primary sources are included (writings from both) to further their knowledge.
