They will create graphs that show each data table and then discuss the relationships they see through data analysis.
A good writer needs to be observant and have an imagination. Hone those creative writing skills with an activity inspired by a very old Chinese artifact. Learners examine the piece Mandarin Duck Rank Badge, and then write a story from the perspective of one of the animals depicted on the badge.

A silk rank badge was a symbolic emblem worn by high officials during the Qing Dynasty. Your class will get a chance to examine the details, symbolism, color, and design of such a badge as they make their own symbolic trading cards. Mandarin Duck Rank Badge is used to inspire the investigation, and from there learners will choose symbols to research as they make their trading cards.
