Story of the World Vol 1 Ch 10

The Far East: Ancient China (2690 BC)

China was such a fascinating place to learn about.  My kids loved learning about the story of the silk worm, rice fields and pictograms of ancient China.

*Disclaimer: please view all videos before showing them to your children. Your standards may not match mine.  I pick videos that I feel are appropriate for even small children, but please be sure view them first.

The Story of Silk - how silk is processed

There is only audio with this one, but it's a fun song about silk worms.

Ancient China - This site is a favorite one of my children.  They will visit it just for fun.  There is so much information here.

Lapbook and Notebooking pages: I use notebooking quick often with my children.  I feel that they learn and retain the information better if they write down facts as they go.  Lapbooking can be fun as well.  Some of my children like it and some think it is to much busy work.
