China’s Geography

Last week students in Social Studies learned about the geography of China. They discovered how tall the Tibetan Plateau is, that the name of the Taklamakan Desert means “those who go in, never come out,” and read a little about the economic goals of China today. Truly they are underway in their study of this large and exotic country.

During the second half of class this next week we will discover some characteristics of the Shang Dynasty, the first dynasty of China, while during the first half of class students will work to complete their maps. We have done a lot of background work to make sure students understand the terrain of China and so hopefully this week’s map will not be too difficult.
Below are a few pictures Red Block.
