Ancient China

Here is our new unit on ancient China.

All students have received a copy of this packet in class and we’ve gone over the expectations. Each student has picked a topic that they are going to focus on for the next eight weeks. We will culminate with school-wide ancient civilizations museum. All due dates for this unit are on the second page of the packet. Students will have a substantial amount of time in class to research, write and work on their project. However, they may need to spend additional time at home to get everything completed on time.

Next week we are off to downtown Portland to enrich our studies on ancient China. Your student should have brought home, had signed and returned their permission slip along with $10 to attend the trip. We will be going to the Portland Art Museum, lunch in Chinatown, Chinese Classical Gardens and to the Central Multnomah Library. It promises to be a very busy and interesting day.
