Why Lesson Planet?
Teens apply their knowledge of the five themes of geography and relate them to China's Silk Road. They investigate how the Silk Road ended China's isolation from the rest of the west. Note that some of the embedded links no longer work, so you will need to search for replacement websites to refer your class to. Also, the first page of the handout overlaps the teacher's guide, so you will want to recreate it more neatly.
