Students will travel the Silk Road in your classroom by using the materials in this packet. This activity is a simulation, and your students’ actions will mirror how the Silk Road worked in real life. During their expedition, students will act as a caravan, complete a travel guide, (a graphic organizer), and learn about the great cities that dotted the Silk Road. What's it like to teach this lesson? I talk about that here.
Included is a description of eight Silk Road cities to post around your classroom, a blank graphic organizer, and a PowerPoint to guide the activity.
