Why Lesson Planet?
Get your young historians thinking about East Asian culture and history during this partner research project, in which they analyze a variety of East Asian aspects to prepare for a presentation. After an initial "what do we already know" discussion, partners are assigned a country in the region and given a handout to guide their research (included). They focus on six areas: history, geography, culture, government, economy, and points of interest. Partners present a poster to the class.
