Explore Ancient China
Scrolling over objects in this present-day classroom takes students back to Early Imperial China. Pull down the projector screen, for example, and view a slideshow about the building of the Great Wall. Change the carousel and zoom in on the details of a brick found in a burial chamber. Open a drawer and find pictures of silk, ceramics, rice and tea from Imperial China along with an interactive that helps students understand the production process. It’s all great fun—and rich with information!
