China - social studies

Please share social studies lessons you've developed relating to China. Please also share links to lessons available elsewhere that you wish to recommend.

Guidelines
1. You may upload lesson plans, readings, handouts, presentations, etc. All standard formats work, but you may only upload one file per post. So -- to upload multiple handouts, etc., please combine them into a single file and upload that.

2. The best format for file sharing is pdf. There are several programs that can convert your file into a pdf. Some are available for free, others have a free trial period. Several programs let you create pdf files, by having you choose to "print" to pdf. This means that you click "print" and then, before printing, you choose the pdf printer from the list of your installed printers.

Some programs/websites:

Cute PDF Writer free program for Windows

PDF converter website converts your file and emails it to you

Primo Online website converts your file (or a webpage) into a pdf and emails it to you

3. Please put the topic for your lesson and the targeted grade range (e.g. Communism, high school) in your subject line.

Please feel free to comment on or offer additional resources for any lesson plan. Please hit reply to comment on a lesson.
