Welcome back from your spring break! We hope it was enjoyable and restful, whether you traveled or stayed in Chennai. April is the start of our new unit – Ancient China. Like previous lessons, we will learn about how geography shaped ancient China (lesson 1). There were many dynasties that ruled China. We will learn about the earliest ones – the Shang, Zhou, Qin, and Han.  Watch this great video (#1 on the playlist) about the dynasties of China. The British Museum has a great link of the geography of China. Read the short, animated story of Nu Gua and try the geography challenge
