Activity Cards

Activity cards accompany the activity-based lesson plan and provide students with insight into the most influential factors effecting life in China during the Middle Ages. Chapter 16’s activity cards represent the five regions from the Chapter Activity (China, Africa, India, Persia, and Korea) and profile two common trade commodities from that region. Students decide which item from their region they will sell, develop a commercial explaining the benefits of their commodity, and engage in trade with their fellow classmates from other regions.
