All About China Lap Book

Ancient China and China Lap Book Unit Study.
In our Unit Study on Ancient China we covered a few topics we had already done in our field trip. 
Since we can not go to China we decided to take Disney's version of the Forbidden City and Terracotta Army as our example.
In this Unit you will find:

Chinese Alphabet
Chinese Festivals
The Silk Road
Ancient Chinese Medicine
My Ancient Scroll
Chinese Emperors
Landmarks
Chinese Animals

Communism 
Mao Zedong
List of Communist Countries
Chinese Dynasties Timeline
Buddha
Confucius

Note that this is not a lesson plan for teachers it is just a lap book. 
You have to research about every topic there is to teach.



We had lots of fun with crafts and online activities.
We created a Wall of China paper model and made a few Chinese new Year crafts.

Here are some pics of the lap book I made for my son.
We covered Communism in China and Mao Zedong
