Instructional Ideas

  • There are no references for the information presented in the presentation. Consider having pupils check the accuracy of each listed invention as a homework assignment, citing their own sources along the way
  • As an assessment or extended writing assignment, ask pupils to consider the overall or greatest contributions provided by Chinese civilizations, as well as to consider how such technology managed to spread across the globe
Classroom Considerations

  • The icon in the bottom right-hand corner appears as though it should link to something as a home page, but it does not
Pros

  • Lists 12 separate Chinese inventions, each on its own slide
  • An image/graphic accompanies each invention
Cons

  • Information for each invention is fairly brief, providing little to no specific dates nor historical context
