Product Description
In this lesson students are asked to decide whether Emperor Ying Zheng should be remembered as a hero or a villain based on his actions.

He was the first emperor to unify the seven warring states of China.

The lesson includes:
- A handout describing Ying Zheng's a life.
- A worksheet with questions and activities for the students to complete.
- A powerpoint with instructions and activities and also some recent photographs of the Forbidden City and the Great Wall of China.
- An embedded video (3.26 minutes) from the documentary "The man who made China".
- Optional and simple essay planning sheets for extended writing.

This lesson was devised to go along with a whole unit I teach on China: past and present. The lesson contains cloze questions and higher order thinking tasks. To extend my students I ask them to consider what makes a good leader and can a person be a good leader but still be considered a villain, for example. The preview file only has a sample of the slides. I had tried to make a PDF with pictures of all the slides and worksheets but it was too big to upload!

This lesson would work well as part of a world History study as well as being quite timely for Chinese New Year.

Thanks for looking and I hope you find this helpful!
