This module is for Grades: 6-8 Welcome
The history of people and the societies they lived in can be told through the processes they underwent. Just like present-day nations like the United States, older empires rose to power, ruled their societies and then fell. For example, leaders in China rose and fell to power within a dynasty. Other societies included social groups that played important roles, such as in Medieval Europe. Finally, some processes resulted in dramatic changes to civilizations, such as the plagues that struck people living in Asia and Europe.
In the activities that follow, you will examine some of the cycles and processes that occurred within ancient China and Medieval Europe.
By the end of this module, you will be able to:
- Analyze how and why individuals, events or ideas develop and interact to examine the processes involved in the dynastic cycle of China.
