In this unit on ancient Asia, you'll learn about the rise of major world religions, the exchange of trade goods and cultural traditions throughout ancient Asia, and the different social systems in place in ancient India, China, and Japan. You'll explore a broad range of ancient Asian history from the caste system of India to the terra-cotta warriors of emperor Qin Shi Huangdi to the development of traditional Japanese art forms.
You'll share what you've learned with your family in a final project: either a multimedia slide presentation or a puppet show about these three ancient cultures.
