Reviewer Comments:

This resource is one unit in the collection of Seventh Grade Social Studies curriculum. The lessons include objectives, detailed procedures, and useful handouts. Students will participate in a variety of activities that will help them learn about China. Some of the highlights include learning about the weakening of ancient China through a guided reading, making a anti-drug poster based on information about the effects of Opium in China, and creating a voter guide to educate Americans about China. The lessons are geared towards a specific classroom at the middle school level, however, with some modifications much of the curriculum can be easily adapted to any Social Studies classroom at the middle or high school level that is covering World History.
