Stay On Top of Evertything!

What did we do this previous week?

In the previous week, we have been busy with numerous things. On Monday, we took our Unit Two test on the Middle East. Then, we worked on our East Asia maps. Then, we learned background knowledge about Chinese dynasties by taking notes and watching a Crash Course video "2,00 Years of Chinese History!". Then, we moved into groups and chose a dynasty to research and create an interactive picture.

What are we learning about?

  • Chinese Dynasties
  • The Dynastic Cycle
  • The Mandate of Heaven
