Mapping China

Warm Up  Get oriented with China's geography by watching the guided Google Earth tour of China below.  What observations can you make?  

Ancient China Map Project  Today you will begin creating an informative digital map of China and labeling it with essential components of its geography.  Directions for the assignment can be found here.  A blank map template can be found here (make sure you make a copy and put it in your name folder with in your Social Studies folder).  There are many different resources you can use to help in labeling your map.  An online student atlas can be found here.  A physical map of China can be found here.  And a political map of China can be found here.  We will work on this in class today and tomorrow.
