Warm Up/Class Work: Please work with your assigned groups to  complete the Walking Gallery activity we began Tuesday.

Chinese Dynasties Formative Assessment.

Please use pp 152-153 in the atlas on your table to help you locate and label the following cities on your Afroeurasian Trade Map:

  • Baghdad 
  • Beijing 
  • Mumbai 
  • Kashgar (Kashi, p. 168, NDA)

On the Afroeurasian Trade Chart, for “Goods Produced” and “Asia”, write:

  • Silk
  • Gunpowder
  • Cotton
  • Spices
  • Livestock

In the box on the chart for “Trade Routes” and “Asia”, write:

  • Beijing to Kashgar (land)
  • Kashgar to Baghdad (land)
  • Beijing to Mumbai (sea)
  • Kashgar to Constantinople (land)

Then, use a colored pencil to trace those routes, using dashed green lines for land routes and solid blue lines for sea routes.
