In this unit, you'll explore the vast continent of Asia as well as the Indian Ocean. You'll explore history, geography, politics, and culture from places as diverse as Russia, the Middle East, India, southeast Asia, and China. Along the way, you'll create a map of Asia, learn about current events in the Middle East, explore the impact of monsoons, plan a Japanese garden, and figure out just how big Indonesia is in a hands-on way.
For your final project, you will create a themed tour of Asia that will allow travelers to experience several Asian countries and create memories that they will never forget!
The Age 11-13 social studies units utilize a Timeline of Ancient Civilization along with a stack of timeline cards to enhance your child's understanding of the
chronology of historical events. Cards are color coded so your child can easily see and compare what was happening in different
parts of the world at the same time.
