As part of the archaeology enrichment class I taught, I introduced students to the terra cotta warriors uncovered in China. In this powerpoint, we went over the history of how the clay warriors were found and considered what they may have been used for. Students were impressed with the amount of detail put into each warrior.
As part of the lesson, I had students create their own terra cotta warrior, which they got to take home. Instructions are included in the slides as well as student examples! (It's a little messy, but very fun!)
