Socials 8-1 and 8-2: Intro to the ocean explorers and trade
I started today by reminding you of the time expectations in class. The study guide activities are designed to be completed in 70 minutes or less. If you are unable to complete all of the questions/activities, please do so for homework so that you don't get behind. ENSURE you keep all of your work in the rings of you binder so it is not lost (it needs to be ready to be checked for completion).
We began the lesson with a look at the world map where we reminded ourselves about projection and scale. Next, I showed a short clip of video so that you could see a replica Chinese junk under sail, and learn of Admiral Zheng. We used the rest if the block to complete the guide titled "Riches of Asia."
